Supporting Youth in the Child Welfare System: Implementation Lessons from the DREAMR Project

Tuesday, May 16, 2017 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm

Grief and Loss in Foster Care: Implementation of the 3-5-7 Model™

Join us for the three-part webinar series, Supporting Youth in the Child Welfare System: Implementation Lessons from the DREAMR Project, which will highlight collaborative partnerships, youth engagement and skill-building, and enhanced relationship capacity.

There has been continued attention to promoting successful outcomes for youth in the child welfare system through research and evidence-based practice. Academic and educational achievement, capacity to form and sustain meaningful relationships, and awareness of health and pregnancy prevention are considered several desired outcomes for youth. Additionally, it is recognized that the impact of trauma, separation, and loss can influence the achievement of these outcomes.

Learn from the DREAMR Project. DREAMR stands for Determined, Responsible, Empowered Adolescents, and Mentoring Program. It has been a five-year, federally-funded, collaborative research effort that focused on implementation of the 3-5-7 Model™, mentoring by trained adults, and teen pregnancy prevention and parenting skill-building. As the lead project agency, the Lincy Institute at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas collaborated with community partners to support youth development. Project partners included Clark County Department of Family Services, Southern Nevada Health District, Olive Crest, and Specialized Alternatives for Families & Youth. The webinar series features the work of these agencies and findings from their efforts on:

  • Implementation of the 3-5-7 Model™
  • Mentoring Youth in Foster Care
  • Supporting Teen Parents in Foster Care through a Nurturing Parenting Program

The DREAMR practice and research team, Children’s Bureau project officer, and CWLA will present this integrated series of webinars that will share research and program implementation designed to support youth in foster care.
