Sarah Bess Lee Hudson is our Lead Facilitator, dedicated to hearing the "ME" in the voices of Georgia’s foster youth. She has a special focus on EmpowerMEnt, a statewide youth leadership development and advocacy initiative (utilizing youth-adult partnership) for current/former foster youth between ages 14-26+. After earning her Master of Social Work (MSW) degree ifrom Georgia State University with a focus in Community Partnerships and Consensus Organizing, Sarah Bess began working alongside youth self-advocates as an adult supporter (in various capacities) on issues impacting youth and young adults in the foster care system for over a decade. A strong advocate for children, Sarah Bess is also an ardent fan of MAAC: “motivating, mobilizing, autonomy, family-friendly, advocacy, mentorship, determination, dedication, drive, discipline, fun, creative, inspiring, empowering, engaging, mavericks, innovation, mission-driven: it is all of these things to work in this culture and to be in community with colleagues such as these as we help nurture EmpowerMEnt in the process!”
