CLOSE TIES

The 2020 International Foster Care Organization (IFCO) Close Ties conference will profile initiatives that help children and youth in care to thrive by promoting the creation of significant relationships and a sense of belonging to family, community, and culture.

PROGRAM

In profiling initiatives, Close Ties will shine a spotlight on researchinformed practices, community mobilization efforts, and clinical and personal experiences. Participants will also be invited to consider the power of the arts in leveraging social change. Particular attention will be placed on highlighting populations that urgently need our attention, namely: Indigenous children and families, migrant children, 2SLGBTQQIA youth, children with disabilities, and youth transitioning out of care.

  • Sector professionals and service providers
  • Youth and families
  • Academics and researchers
  • Policy makers
  • Students
  • Others involved in promoting the well-being of children in care
