Achieving healthy and productive lives for transition age youth in foster care.
Foster youth between the ages of 15 and 21 are particularly vulnerable, as they transition into adulthood and age out of the foster care system. Typically, they have few supportive adults in their lives and limited access to college and career options. Despite these barriers, they are resilient and can make the transition if given the opportunity. We work with partners to help transition age foster youth find their path to success.
News from the Field
More than 20,000 older youth leave foster care every year, many without the permanent adult connections, education, experience or skills needed to succeed as adults.
