Event Details

Tuesday, September 24 – 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm ET

Join us for the webinar, The Promise of Adolescence: Realizing Opportunity for All Youth. Two of the members of the National Academies of Sciences (NAS) Committee that produced this recently released report—Leslie Leve, PhD, University of Oregon, and Sue Mangold, JD, Juvenile Law Center—will present report findings that relate most directly to children in the child welfare system. Their presentation will be followed by a conversation between the presenters and the guest editors of a soon-to-be-released special issue of Child Welfare journal, “Twenty Years after the Foster Care Independence Act of 1999 (“Chafee”): What We Know Now About Meeting the Needs of Teens.” Guest editors for this special issue are Cassandra Simmel, PhD, Rutgers University, and Victoria Kelly, PsyD, MSW, CWLA Board of Directors.

This is the first in a series of webinars on this topic. The second webinar will include the youth response to the findings of the NAS report and to the impact of the Chafee Act. The NAS report and report highlights are available for free download at The Promise of Adolescence.
