Request A Speaker

Are you a social work professor needing someone with lived child welfare experience to speak to your class?

A book club that has read Surviving the Storm or want more information on foster care?

A social worker wanting an alumni to speak to your foster parents, or a trainer needing a speaker?

A individual, church, group, club or organization seeking to learn more about foster care and what to hear from someone who knows what its like first hand then consider SaySo for your next event!


Within a 2 to 4 week notice, SaySo alumni and staff can come talk to you.  Please use the form below to give us as much detail as possible about the focus of your topic so we can match the speaker to your event.  Speakers include alumni of the foster care system who have experience aging out, signing CARS agreements, siblings, parenting, with Juvenile Justice, Substance Abuse Recovery, mental illness, managing birth parent relationships, etc. 

We do not charge for speaking, but do ask for a suggested donation of at least $50 and mileage depending on the amount of time requested for the alumni who have to travel, take time off work, school and/or arrange for childcare, etc. Thanks for your support and for spreading the word about our work to educate the community about youth that are or have been in substitute care.
