When Did You Make the Biggest Difference?: A New Video Series from the Family and Youth Services Bureau

A new video series from the Family and Youth Services Bureau's National Clearinghouse on Families & Youth features seven youth workers from around the country, each sharing a time when they made a big difference in a young person's life.

Each youth worker's story captures a hard-earned success, from a teenage boy quitting drugs for his baby son to a young woman sharing a difficult moment from her childhood for the first time. The stories also highlight the importance of permanent connections in the lives of young people.

The videos were shot in Portland, OR, during the 2011 National Runaway and Homeless Youth FYSB Grantee Conference in November.

Watch the new video series.

A complementary series titled "What's Your Most Meaningful Relationship?" features young people who were either formerly homeless or in the foster care system talking about the most essential people in their lives.
