2020: Peer-to-Peer Learning

Youth in foster care can often feel alone because they do not openly talk about their family history with their peers. This isolation can deepen as they become adults and step into educational and professional spaces. Yet, when we are with others who have a similar journey or experience, it reminds us that we are not alone. During the Pandemic, we launched Altura Collaborative, a safe virtual space where folks with lived experience could feel nurtured, supported and seen as they achieve their greatest desires.

In this Altura Roundtable, Aalexus Longmire of Lex Styles and Angelica Nwandu of The Shade Room discuss the power of mentorship and how cross-generational learning has impacted their lives.
