What Is The VOC?
The VOC is comprised of Kentucky foster care youth and alumni aged 16-22 and is instrumental in communicating to foster/adoptive parents, out of home care staff and community partners the issues and needs of youth in care and those who have aged out of the system.
The VOC is a diverse group of young people who come together to advocate for positive change for youth that are in state’s care. Members of the VOC work closely with various people including DCBS staff, judges, CASA staff, state officials, private childcare agencies, educators and many more. The VOC also works with current and former foster youth to develop strategies for a brighter future as well as to educate them about their rights, responsibilities, available resources and the policies that effect their life.
