Speaking & Training Services
Speaking at Imperial Valley College, May 3, 2019
Georgette Todd has spoken to foster teens, TAY (transition-aged youth), foster parents and agencies, MSW college students, foster care liaisons, social workers, child welfare administrators, lawyers, judges, legislators, rotary clubs, churches and nonprofits for over ten years. Depending on the audience's needs, Georgette has shared her personal life journey of her traumatic upbringing to her overcoming all odds as a successful adult.
Whether through a PowerPoint presentation, trainings, speaking on panels or intimately on stage, Georgette has spoken to audiences big and small so to inspire and inform others that while you may not control what happens to you, you can control how you respond to what life throws at you.
Georgette has not only grown up in foster care but she spent years working in social services and youth-centric nonprofits. She has also informally "fostered" a family member for the past year by becoming an overnight mom of a preteen. Georgette brings her unique perspectives in all her talks so to enlighten audiences on all aspects of the foster care system. While raising awareness is important, Georgette is at a point in her career where she is focused on solutions.
In every talk, Georgette gives specific instructions on how the individual can make a difference in their community, work or home life with foster youth and TAY. She also shares life lessons, painful stories, motivating tools and humor.
