Fort Lauderdale youth career fair helps foster children aging out of system

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - Leadership Fort Lauderdale held a youth career day for children who have or will soon exit the foster care system.

The group organized the community project in an effort to help the nearly 600 youth who have exited the foster care system and another 120 youth who will follow.

While those who have left the system be considered legal adults, many have not fully developed the life skills they’ll need to succeed in the adult world.

The foster youth career day featured several influential speakers, including 7’s own Craig Stevens.
