This is a follow-on session to last year's “Helping Foster Care Youth Succeed: Skills and strategies that support the transition to adulthood" and "Helping Foster Care Youth Succeed, Part II". It will explore the need for comprehensive, long-term supports for youth in and out of foster care until age 25 in the areas of coaching, education, employment, and housing. We will hear from some remarkable young people, provider agencies, and the Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) about the programs currently supporting this population and the need for a system-wide model so that all youth are given the opportunity to succeed.
- The challenges foster youth have faced and meaningful supports they have received in the areas of education, career development, and housing
- The importance of coaching/adult support during periods of transition
- Best-practice program models that serve this population, the progress made in recent years, and plans to ensure comprehensive, effective supports system-wide
