Child Welfare 101

For those who work with foster youth, but not directly in the child welfare system, the complex legal processes of the foster care system can sometimes seem bewildering. How does a child makes their way through the legal detention process? What are the differences between different types of guardianship? What does it mean exactly to be a “crossover” youth? How do you figure out a youth’s legal status in order to determine what benefits they may be eligible for?

On this webinar you will hear from child welfare experts on all these topics and more. The webinar was designed in particular to help professionals working with foster youth on college campuses to master the basics of this complex legal system.
