FosterClub 2023 AllStar Internship Announcement

We believe Experience = Expertise. 

The FosterClub AllStar Internship was founded on the belief that young people who have lived experience in foster care are the best positioned to impact their peers in foster care, and to become change agents to improve the foster care system.  AllStars are recognized as leaders on a national scale, and their stories continue to affect policy and practice, significantly improving the lives of youth still in care. 

Interns receive leadership training, help improve outcomes for youth transitioning out of care, educate peers and industry professionals, and change public perceptions about foster youth across the nation at conferences and events. 


Program Overview:

 The AllStar internship is a service and training opportunity for young people with lived experience in the foster care system. AllStars will learn to amplify perspectives of themselves and other young people in foster care to serve peers, build community and and affect systemic change.

The internship is a hybrid 6-week professional and personal development program that includes 2 weeks of in-person service training in Oregon (FosterClub will fly you to Oregon and you get to meet the rest of your fellow AllStars in person).
