Yhon Eduar Angulo, Henry Quiñones, Miguel Angel Renteria and Michael Londoño are the young founding members of the Colombian Association of Graduates from the State Agency (ASCEP), an organization whose objective is to help youngsters and adolescents under the protection of the Colombian Institute for Family Welfare (ICBF).

These youths, who grew up in various ICBF centers, hope to influence public policy with the objective of generating changes in the processes of protection, follow-up and preparation for adult life of other youngsters like themselves.

On Saturday, November 24th, , they will carry out the first forum on successful exiting from state protection in Cali’s Cultural Center. This forum, titled “Progressive Transition to Adult Life, will be a space for dialogue where graduates, academics, experts in the field, the ICBF, the public-private sector and the community will analyze the youths’ transition to foster homes in Colombia, and hopefully come up with concrete actions that will allow a dignified and safe exit.
