Despite all of the obstacles in his way, James Turner was able to graduate from high school, excel in track, and get accepted to college. After being in 17 foster homes and aging out without a forever family, James has found a community of support in positive adults and other mentors who he can lean on. Watch the video below to hear his story and learn what he plans to do to better the lives of other foster youth. 

Original video can be found on the PBS News Hour website, here: http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/former-foster-youth-defies-odds-determine...
