As an organization, the Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation gets invited to a lot of different places to speak about what we do: churches, DCS, foster care licensing agencies, civic organizations, etc. We want to accept as many invitations as possible, but with a small staff it’s hard to do. So we have volunteers from all over the state to help. We’ll train you and provide you with materials and support and then we’ll work within your schedule to arrange times for you to speak on AFFCF’s behalf. 

2020 Dates: February 20 | May 21 (in Tucson, location TBD) | August 20
Time: 5:30 – 7:00PM
Location: Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation
