Speaking Up and Speaking Out - How to be the voice for change
Biografía del autor
April McWilliams serves as a foster care advocate, speaker, and educator on topics of child welfare, behavioral health, and youth engagement. Her mission is to facilitate learning opportunities on how to incorporate youth voice into policy development. "Not About Us Without Us"... her passion stems from personal experience of aging out of foster care at 18. April went on to graduate with a degree in Social Work from the University of Texas at El Paso. Becoming part of the less than 3% of youth in the nation to graduate college after aging out of foster care is an achievement that makes her especially proud because of the journey it took to get there.
April worked with Child Protective Services for over 10 years and in 2015, was awarded the DFPS Shining Star for consistently going above and beyond in her work with families. April dedicates her efforts to getting youth voice to a legislative level to affect systematic change. April volunteers as a consultant to agencies that serve youth to ensure that their voice is heard and elevated as such so that they are engaged in their own case planning.
An El Paso, TX native and devoted Mother of 2, April is able to relate to audiences with a message of perseverance and having a vision past their circumstances.
