Jocelyn B. Scott was born in New York City. She holds a Master’s Degree in Social Work and is an award-winning documentary filmmaker. Her love of rich and diverse story-telling and her commitment to foster care advocacy has continually demanded Jocelyn to think bolder and bigger about approaches to problem solving and social justice.

Believing in possibilities for those aged out of foster care, Jocelyn created The YOUNG WOMEN’S POSSIBILITIES CONFERENCE {YWPC}. A one-day leadership conference designed specifically for young women who have experienced foster care. The goal of the conference is to affirm brilliance, cultivate leadership skills, and create a safe space for sisterhood, positive self-images, and a sense of awareness

Jocelyn won a Governor’s Emmy for Exemplary Programming for producing the documentary HEALING THE HATE. And produced the Award Winning feature documentary 21 AND DONE, about foster children aging out of the foster care system.
