Topic: Youth Transitioning Into Adulthood
Why was Youth Transitioning Into Adulthood chosen as a topic by the Advisory Committee? (Click for Answer)
Youth Transitioning into Adulthood was chosen by the Advisory Committee in recognition of the urgent need to assist older foster youth with the skills and knowledge required for a successful transition into adulthood. Since the passing of the Chaffee Foster Care Independence Act, some funds have been available to serve this population. However, outcome studies still demonstrate many youth are homeless, pregnant, and unemployed after leaving care. Child Welfare Agencies and the Courts need information on effective youth transitioning services and supports; and need to know how to help youth establish or re-establish strong and enduring ties to one or more nurturing adults.
