CCAI is extremely excited that our 15 Foster Youth Interns (FYI) arrive in Washington, DC today to begin their summer-long assignment on Capitol Hill.
This assignment provides individuals who have spent time in the United States foster care system with an opportunity to intern in a Congressional office, and share their experiences, opinions and unique perspectives with policymakers in Congress. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the program; 106 extremely talented, passionate and impressive individuals have participated in the past decade.
Welcome to Washington, FYIs. We’ve been waiting for you!
