Who: Youth from Oregon’s foster care system who are nearing 19 to 21 years old. (PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THIS SURVEY UNTIL AFTER YOU ARE 18 years old or older.) 

Why: As a foster youth who has lived the experience, you are the expert. Your voice needs to be heard. It’s how decision makers are going to know what needs to be improved for youth in care.

This survey takes about 15 minutes to complete. The questions on this survey should be answered from your perspective. In other words, 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.

We encourage you to download a list of the questions 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 that you don't leave questions unanswered. Download a printable version of the NYTD Followup Survey
