September/October 2011Vol. 12, No. 7Foster Care Alumni Provide Insight on Transition

Offered by the Foster Care Alumni of America (FCAA), a new book written by more than 100 foster care alumni highlights the complex journeys, challenges, and opportunities faced by youth transitioning out of foster care to independent living. Flux provides unique insight into the world of transition through stories told by youth. The book functions as a resource guide to youth currently in care and is centered on the question: What do I wish someone had told ME when I was 15, 18, 25?

FCAA also offers a customized, 1-day training curriculum with the book. For more information on the training or the book, or to download a sample chapter, visit FCAA's website:
