You are cordially invited to join us for the 5th Annual UT Child Welfare Conference!

In the Child Welfare field, we encounter youth who are disproportionally represented in the system or do not have access to the resources they need due to their status or identity. As a child welfare practitioner, researcher and /or advocate it is essential that we learn more about their experiences and learn the skills needed to guide them to successful outcomes. This is why we are focusing on best practices for empowering ALL youth by breaking barriers and building resilience. please join your colleagues for a day of interactive skills-based workshops, an inspiring keynote and numerous networking opportunities!
