Child Welfare Virtual Expo (CWVE) Learning Experiences
Explore the archived CWVE session videos and associated resources to learn from youth and families with lived expertise and experienced child welfare professionals.
Each year, the Child Welfare Virtual Expo (CWVE) brings together child welfare professionals, their organizational partners, and youth and families with lived expertise from around the country to explore a topic of current interest to the child welfare community.
Following each year’s CWVE, the Center creates a learning experience that pairs the recorded session videos, resource lists, and other associated resources from the live event with a discussion guide that agencies can use to transform new ideas into action.
