May 2023Vol. 24, No. 4Podcast Discusses Authentic Engagement of Children and Youth in Child Welfare

Launched in January 2023, the Quality Improvement Center on Engaging Youth in Finding Permanency (QIC-EY) Podcast highlights core themes for advancing engagement of children and youth in child welfare. In this limited series, we hear from three professionals: Phoenix Santiago, Nathan Ross, and Jamole Callahan. While their experiences connected to child welfare differ, they share the same deep commitment to ensuring systematic changes in how children and youth are authentically engaged and empowered. The podcast episodes are in the first lesson of the QIC-EY Lessons Learned series.

Three additional lessons learned are scheduled for release in May, July, and September.
