TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES

All foster parents are required to participate in relevant training each year.  This is a great opportunity to gain parenting skills, better understand the effects of trauma, and meet other local foster parents.  If you're unsure if a training opportunity will count towards your hours, please send us an email prior to signing up to make sure you will receive credit.  Alliance provides many local and online trainings specific to foster care.  Sign up to receive email updates about upcoming trainings in your area.

FORMS FOR CURRENT FOSTER PARENTS

Incident Report Forms - Please notify Youthnet immediately and submit IR within 24 hours

BACKGROUND FORMS

If you're planning to have a new household member over the age of 16 (for any length of time), a visitor for more than 7 days, or if you're planning to hire a nanny (caring for your children frequently, at least once a month), please submit these forms and a copy of their driver's license to your Youthnet licensor.  These forms must be submitted immediately, and foster children cannot be left unsupervised with these individuals until their background clearance is received.  Background clearances usually take 1-3 months to process.

Household members over 18 and nannies will also need to provide a copy of their driver's license, auto insurance, TB test, and current CPR/First Aid training.
