The DHS Independent Living Program has been sponsoring Oregon’s annual ILP Teen Conference for over 22 years. This FREE event provides 100 current or former foster youth with information and peer-led (by the FosterClub Allstars) workshops regarding transition planning, post-secondary education, employment, supportive healthy relationships, community connections, and much much more! These youth will gather with other foster youth from across the state, discuss how to improve the foster care system, and enjoy some fun recreational activities while experiencing different college campuses. The conference is held in June for current or former DHS or tribal ILP eligible foster youth between the ages of 14-20. Note: Supervision and transportation will need to be determined prior to registration.
This year’s Oregon ILP Teen Conference in partnership with FosterClub, will be at Camp Arrah Wanna near beautiful Mt. Hood from Monday, June 16th-Thursday, June 19th 2014. There is a great lineup of recreation, activities and workshops for youth, presented by the FosterClub Allstars. Talk to the Independent Living Provider in your area to inquire and see attached flyer for additional details.
