Nebraska & Argentina
Nebraska Children and Families Foundation, based in Lincoln, Nebraska, is paired with Doncel Asociación Civil from Buenos Aires, Argentina to exhange best practices for youth in foster care.
How might the lives of former foster youth be different if they could benefit from the support of peers who shared a similar journey?
In 2010, Doncel, a civil society organization in Argentina, started incorporating youth voices more intentionally in its work to prepare to foster youth for indedpendent living.
After years of dedicated work supporting youth transitioning out of foster care in Argentina, Doncel realized that even more could be accomplished when youth insights were taken to heart.
