A Transition Plan for Foster Youth
Are you a young person in transit from youth to adulthood? Do you work with or are a supportive adult of a foster youth about to transition out of foster care?
The journey from foster care to independence can been difficult, confusing and uncertain times. Like any other journey, being prepared helps to set the right course and avoid getting lost on the way. Today more than ever, if you want success (and safety) to life on your own, you'll need to plan for your trip.
FosterClub’s Transition Toolkit was designed just for this transitioning journey. It is a youth-involved, comprehensive way to develop a transition plan for foster youth aging out of care. The Transition Toolkit includes planning worksheets, record keeping, detailed maps and resources on the topics of:
- Jobs and Career*
- Self Care + Health*
- Community, Culture & Social Life*
- Finances + Money Management
- Life Skills
*In compliance with requirements of the Fostering Connections to Success and Increased Adoptions Act of 2008.
It’s your life — so take control and let the journey begin!
