The FSM Champions of the Domains Webinar Series highlights the innovative ways that campus based support programs in the FSM Network provide support to students with experience in foster care in each life domain.The Blavin Scholars Program recently offered a student-centered, student-directed life skills conference at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor in response to student requests for more streamlined workshops. The day long, spy themed event included opportunities for students to build a wide range of life skills related to budgeting, studying, self-defense and even included cooking workshops with world renown chefs! The event ended with a discussion panel where Blavin almuni discussed their own "adulting" experiences. Join us as we talk to Miriam Connolly, Director of the Blavin Scholars program to learn more about this innovative intervention and tips you can use to help students build capacity in the Life Skills Domain!
