Youth portion of the IFCO 2016 European Conference will consist of two separate tracks: the Youth Track (EmpowerMEnt) and the Youth Advocate Track (Advocacy). These titles are based on the theory that upon leaving care, care leavers make the transition from being a Youth to a Youth Advocate (Kendrick-Burk et al, 2013), and that separate needs may need to be met for these different groups.

Participants will have the opportunity to select their track of preference upon registration, and may choose to change this preference.
