Welcome to Nevada’s National Youth in Transition Database (NYTD) Survey.

Who: This survey is for young people in foster care and from foster care to be completed on or after their 21st birthday and no later than March 31, 2018. Please do not take this survey until your 21st birthday.

Why: The information from this survey will be provided to the state of Nevada and used to help to improve the child welfare system for our brothers and sisters still in care.

This survey takes about 15 minutes to complete. The questions on this survey should be answered from your perspective. In other words, you should answer based on what you know at this point in time. Don’t get discouraged if you don’t know some of the answers – this is not a test and you won’t be graded.

Part of the goal of NYTD is to measure what young people understand about their own situations. However, if you don’t know some of these answers, we encourage you to download a version of the paper survey and go over it with your caseworker, foster parent, or another supportive adult. This will help you make sure that you understand all of the resources that are available to you. Also, we created a list of explanations to some of the questions that might be confusing so you don't leave questions unanswered and reported as declined to answer.

Reminder: This should be completed: AFTER the youth’s 21st birthday and no later than March 31, 2018
