May is Foster Care Month...Nearly 20,000 teens "age out" of foster care each year -- the focus of Leontyne Anglin's independent short film, "18 and Out". Johanna Greeson, PhD candidate, School of Social Work, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, stops by to discuss "Caring Adults R Everywhere", and the positive role mentors can play with teens facing life on their own, often as young as 18 years old. 

Rather than just focus on the negative aspects, we'll share how ordinary citizens can learn more, raise awareness, and outline specific ways people can help.
