This is a brief to summarize the 2017 activities around the Going Places Campaign (a SPARC initiative).  

Teens in foster care as well as youth who age out of care often face significant barriers to obtaining a driver’s license. Without a driver’s license, young people in foster care often miss out on age-appropriate adolescent experiences and opportunities that contribute to success in adulthood. Recognizing the high level of importance that a driver’s license can have in the life of an adolescent or young adult in foster care, SPARC and its state partners launched a targeted policy campaign to encourage policymakers to take action to remove barriers and promote better access to driver’s education and driver’s licenses for young people in foster care.
