Voices for Children’s next Real Word panel will be held at the Rancho Bernardo Library on Wednesday, Feb. 20 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The Real Word is a panel of youth and young adults sharing their experiences in foster care, including moving from home to home, being separated from siblings, and coping in the face of adversity.

The panel is also a chance to learn about Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) trained by Voices for Children. CASAs are specially trained to support and advocate for foster children in court, school, and the community, and each Real Word panelist has worked with a CASA as they navigated the dependency system.

The event is free, but seating is limited. Learn more and RSVP here.
