Fostering Futures

With the support of a grant from the National CASA Association we are launching a new initiative, Fostering Futures Alaska, to train and equip CASA volunteers throughout the state to specialize in working with youth at risk of "aging out" of the child welfare system. 

The Fostering Futures program engages CASA volunteers as advocates for and advisors to foster youth ages 14 – 21. The program is built around the framework of the Fostering Connections to Success Act, to help youth identify supportive, lifelong adult connections, and to develop specific plans for their transition to become independent, successful adults. A key principle of the training and work with older youth is the "possible selves” model, based on research out of the University of Michigan, to help young people achieve their full potential.

To learn how YOU can become a Fostering Futures volunteer, visit the Fostering Futures Alaska webpage.


Volunteer Your Time to Change a Child's Life

Nobody longs for a safe and loving family more than a child in foster care. As a CASA volunteer, you are empowered to help make this dream a reality. You will be the one consistent adult in these children’s lives, vigilantly fighting for and protecting their fundamental right to be treated with the dignity and respect every child deserves. You will not only bring positive change to the lives of these vulnerable children, but also their children and generations to come. And in doing so, you will enrich your life as well.

Programs around the state are looking for responsible adults who want to make a difference in the life of a foster youth. Click here for more information, or use the Volunteer tab at the top of the page to find a local program near you.
