The Foster Youth Museum's mission is to "build awareness of the foster youth experience, from vulnerability and trauma to healing and transformation. By bearing witness to the art, artifacts, voices, and stories of youth who have journeyed through the foster care system, the museum ignites compassion and action so you can be part of empowering youth through supportive and meaningful connection."1 The Youth Training Project (YTP) and California Youth Connection (CYC) created the Foster Youth Museum (FYM) in 2006 and it is in the infancy/growth stage of its organizational lifecycle. The overarching objective for this capstone project was to assist in the creation and execution of The FYM's inaugural exhibition "Lost Childhoods."
