Focus Group Participants Needed – Can You Help?

The Center for the Study of Social Policy, in collaboration with Casey Family Programs, is recruiting focus group participants for Our Identities, Ourselves: Antiracist Data Project which will uplift the voices of young people, parents and caregivers with lived experience and gather information to develop best practice guidance that supports child welfare agencies in collecting and using accurate data on race, ethnicity and other identities.

They need help recruiting participants for the following virtual focus groups:

  • Parents/caregivers with lived experience with child welfare agencies; and
  • Youth and young adults ages 16-26 with lived experience in foster care.

Please share the attached outreach flyers (for parents/ caregivers, for youth/ young adults) with your networks, community partners, and others who may be interested as soon as possible. All focus group participants will be compensated for their expertise and time. Virtual focus groups will take place during the weeks of March 22 and March 29.

Please email with any questions.
