With the beginning of the new year, we are happy to welcome a second cohort of Foster America fellows to our ranks! The twelve new Foster America fellows braved the frigid, snowy weather to join us for an initial week of preservice training in Boston, MA from January 2-5, 2018. In addition to valuable cohort bonding, highlights from this intensive week of learning included:
The Cohort 2 fellows bring a diverse array of professional experiences to the child welfare sector, including backgrounds in data analytics, management consulting, international development, large-scale technology implementation, legal services, and more. The fellows have taken full-time leadership roles to lead high-impact reform projects at the child welfare agencies in Allegheny County (PA), District of Columbia, New York City, Connecticut, Minnesota, Missouri, and Washington. We look forward to sharing more about their accomplishments throughout the year ahead.
