What is the Purpose of Knowing Who You Are?
When young people grow up in foster care and are raised apart from their natural families, they often lose connections to their ethnic heritage. 

This is true for all youth, not just youth of color. Knowing Who You Are (KWYA) gives participants the tools they need to begin courageous conversations to help youth in care on their ethnic and cultural journey.

What is Knowing Who You Are ?
KWYA is a process for helping those in the child welfare field promote the racial and ethnic identity of youth in care, while giving them some skills/activities to do with others on their own racial and ethnic identity journey.  
Foster parents will receive 20 hours of foster parent training for completing this training. Professional CEUs are also available.
