With the goal of RTB being to improve the outcomes of current and former foster youth, one of our focuses will be utilizing the experiences of former foster youth who have overcome similar barriers.
Former foster youth will be represented in RTB through both staffing and mentorship opportunities. By utilizing relative experiences, RTB believes that the youth will be more receptive to services, and more importantly, be able to experience positive role modeling from youth who rose from similar circumstances.
All efforts taken by RTB will be rooted in building relationships and developing lasting communities of support. Through championing interdependent communities and focusing on relational development, we can afford under-resourced youth populations the opportunity to help others from similar backgrounds, and ultimately, lessen the burden on public systems.
