Listen and learn from youth in foster care

Want to hear directly from young people about being in foster care?   About having parents who can't take care of you?

Then go to WNYC's "Growing Up in the System."   "In the System" is the product of the Radio Rookies®, a New York Public Radio® initiative that provides teenagers with the tools and training to create radio stories about themselves, their communities and their world.

So take a listen.   You may just learn something about why preventing child abuse and neglect is such a good thing.   Preventing maltreatment is about more than helping parents not hurt their kids.   It's about ensuring young people can achieve their promise.
