#WhenIWas18 Campaign Launches

Tags: #WhenIWas18

18 is a defining moment in everyone’s life, but for foster youth who are too young to be on their own—it’s monumental. First Place for Youth asked a few celebrities and young people to share their #whenIwas18 stories to illustrate that everyone needs a little extra help as they find their way.

For foster youth, that help isn’t always there. First Place supports these young people as they are learning to support themselves as responsible adults – just as a family would. Click here to see the #whenIwas18 video.
