NexGen Fostering Success

The Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF), along with Our Kids and community partners, will host a foster parent recruitment event on Saturday, January 30, 2016, featuring a concert in the park by the NexGen and The Motivational Edge Band. This event, Fostering Success: One Teen at a Time, is free and open to the public.

Florida's NexGen Band is a group of teenagers who are either foster, adopted or biological children of foster families from various locations within Florida. The musical group was formed from a larger network of teens in foster care and their families through the Florida Foster and Adopted Parent Association and The Motivational Edge.
