Strategic Sharing for Change Makers

Photo of a group of older youthDuring this training you'll learn how to share your story so that people will listen, and so that good changes can be made to the foster care system. Ideally, sharing personal experiences educates, influences, inspires, and makes a difference. At its worst, it can feel manipulative or exploitative and lead to harmful consequences. It’s about making good choices about how we tell our life stories so that our voices can be heard, our message is effective, and our well-being is protected. Strategic sharing is meaningful, respectful, and safe

Why is it important to share our stories?
