To Foster Change


To Foster Change is a social impact initiative of PBS SoCal, aimed at inspiring change in the realities and life outcomes of Southern California’s foster youth. Through community engagement and powerful storytelling, we will raise public awareness of the personal struggles, social dilemmas and systemic challenges that affect the ability of foster youth to fully flourish. By exploring the people and issues involved from different points of view, we will expand the narrative about foster youth, clarify any misperceptions and demystify the foster care system. In the end, we hope the initiative will result in better life outcomes of foster youth. We will inspire the sharing of ideas and collaborative problem-solving in the foster youth community. And we will provide the public with information on ways to get involved.
