This website features links to narratives by ten current and former foster youth on how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted their education or career paths. The youth discuss challenges related to foster youth living on college campuses that have closed, the resilience of foster youth, how foster youth are continuing their education, uncertainties about the future, the inequalities faced by foster youth, coping with the additional trauma of COVID-19, the longing for in-person interactions, parenting during COVID-19, and the need to appreciate life and be kind to one another.
