Purpose: Empower older youth to make important decisions about their lives while receiving developmentally-appropriate services and supports as they transition into adulthood.
Who it typically serves: Older youth who have lived in foster care or kinship care and were adjudicated dependent and neglected; are engaged in or intend to engage in employment or an educational, vocational, or employment program; and have entered or are willing to enter a voluntary services agreement with a county department.
