CSSP’s Youth Power, Parent Power initiative partnered with New Jersey’s Montclair State University and the Annie E. Casey Foundation (AECF) on a youth-driven research project to explore the risk and protective factors associated with first and repeat births among females emancipating from foster care. Young parents with lived experience identified the research questions, analyzed the data, co-wrote an article about the research findings, and, using the research findings, co-presented on a national webinar. The article was published by the Journal of Children and Youth Services Review. Please read the article by clicking here.
