Youth in foster care should be involved in decision making and case planning throughout their time in the child welfare system. They should make decisions, lead discussions, and work toward their goals with the assistance and guidance of supportive adults. This factsheet is intended to help youth in foster care speak up about their wants, needs, concerns, questions, goals, and ambitions. It provides information about how to engage with the child welfare system at the individual case level and through greater advocacy efforts.
