We have contacted key stake holders in the welfare system and NGOs in Germany and Israel in order to raise their awareness and inform them about education for youth in care.
In Germany- we established a group of care institutions that are interested in the topic and are willing to support the project.
In Israel- we created a steering committee that brings together youth villages, higher education institutions and several NGO's interested in this area. Consequently, several local partnerships between universities/colleges, NGO's and youth villages have been formed.
We have developed a policy paper that presents the issue of education for care leavers and are disseminating it.
In Germany – Reports about the care leavers-network have been published and broadcasted in regional and national media such as journals and radio (f.e. http://www.spiegel.de/
Furthermore, the network created a movie about care leavers in higher education.
