Michael Place (USA)
As a former foster youth, Michael Place personally witnessed the disparaging inconsistencies of the care system. He learned just how much work needed to be done to make sure children in care are well taken care of. It has been his personal mission to address the concerns of the system and help youth who have been in the system, heal.
Michael has worked for various organisations over the course of 10 years. At this current moment, he is starting his very own organisation to help youth who get quality mental health treatment.
"As a visionary, I specialize in helping organisations and people create meaningful and creative change to their work. And as a problem solver, I also specialize in programatic thinking that produces great results.
I am well connected and respected in the United States foster care community.
Having been featured in some of the top media news circle, people have learned to trust me and my work.
As a member of the Board of IFCO, I will be sure to bring all of these skills and experiences to help carry out IFCO’s important mission."
