Adolescent Services Training (AST) hosts special annual events. The following are scheduled for 2016:

Regional Youth Event and Speak Out

These events provide foster care youth with an opportunity to present their individual issues to a panel of regional policy makers who can effect local change. The regional youth leadership teams will use these annual events to work in partnership with adults, practice their leadership skills, and gather information from the large number of youth in care who attend. In addition, these events also provide an opportunity for the youth to recruit new members for the regional youth leadership groups. PDP hosts regional Youth Events in each of the six OCFS regions.
