Tune in for the newest episode of CASA on the Go, our new continuing education podcast for CASA volunteers and staff! Through short, dynamic episodes, this podcast connects CASA advocates with subject matter experts discussing topical issues connected to child welfare.
According to a Texans Care for Children report citing data from 2015, teens in Texas foster care were almost five times more likely to become pregnant than their non-foster care peers. In this episode of CASA on the Go, we’re thrilled to host Kate Murphy, Senior Child Welfare Policy Associate with Texans Care for Children, sharing her expertise on the complex issues around teen pregnancy prevention for youth in foster care. Learn what CASA advocates can do to connect youth with education about healthy relationship dynamics, support the prevention of unplanned teen pregnancies and successfully advocate for the unique needs of pregnant and parenting youth in care.
In case you missed it, our first episode features Jamie Bernstein, Assistant Director of the Supreme Court of Texas Children’s Commission, with practical tips and insights on how to strengthen your educational advocacy.
