The Office of Children and Family Services is asking LGBTQ+ youth with foster care experience to participate in a listening session. Your experiences and expertise are important to making certain the foster care system is supporting and responding to the needs of all LGBTQ+ youth. Your voice is critical in this process, and we would be grateful for your participation. Participation information below:
- Age range: 14-20 years old
- Participants: youth who both identify as LGBTQ+ and have experienced the foster care system
- Access: listening sessions will be virtual. Youth will require access to an internet enabled phone or computer, as well as a safe, private space to participate in the listening session
- How to Sign-Up: Youth can access the listening session sign-up page here. There are currently two listening sessions scheduled from 4-6pm, the last Monday and Tuesday of each month from June to November 2021. Please choose a time slot as soon as possible, as each listening session has a maximum of 10 participants
In order to maintain privacy and confidentiality, cameras will be disabled in the WebEx platform. We also ask that all youth change their name upon logging in to something anonymous. These events will not be recorded, and we ask that all participants honor the confidentiality of others if they choose to share any personal information.
If you have any questions about this opportunity, please send them to LGBTQ@ocfs.ny.gov.
