The Congressional Caucus on Foster Youth presents the 2014 Congressional Foster Youth Shadow Day in Washington, DC. Shadow Day is an excellent, all expense paid, opportunity for young people from around the country and members of congress to meet and learn from one another. Young people in and from foster care are able to speak to and learn about their congresswomen and men while gaining a “hands-on” understanding about how the U.S. government works and operates on a daily basis.
