The Partnership of Iowa Foster Care Youth Councils, AMP- Achieving Maximum Potential, will hold its 2018 legislative day at the capitol on Monday, January 22, in Des Moines. AMP’s seventh annual event will feature AMP youth speaking on various topics sharing their personal experiences in shelter, group, kinship, adoption and foster family care.

AMP youth from 14 foster care youth councils will meet with their local legislators regarding ideas and suggestions for improvements to Iowa’s child welfare system at a capital luncheon held for AMP youth and legislators from 11:30am-12:45pm.

A press conference is scheduled on Monday 2:00- 2:45 p.m. January 22, 2018, on the first-floor Capitol rotunda of the State Capitol Building. AMP youth will also be hand carrying to each legislator a copy of their 2018 Legislative Agenda. The ideas for change in this document were generated by the youth themselves. They reflect their experiences and challenges growing up in Iowa’s out-of home care.
