An Assessment of Resources to Support Transitioning Youth

This assessment tool guide was developed in collaboration with FosterClub, a national network for youth in foster care, who has developed a planning toolkit to help states implement the youth-directed transition plan mandated by Fostering Connections.

Each worksheet has a readiness scale that will help young people and their team assess current areas of strength and highlight areas where more work needs to be done before the young person transitions to independence. This guide uses 10 specific domains:

  • Housing
  • Self-care and Health
  • Education
  • Life skills
  • Transportation
  • Identity
  • Permanence
  • Community, Culture, & Social Life
  • Job & Career

The worksheets are customizable to meet a state or community’s needs. Most importantly – it is youth-powered and youth-friendly. To access, please click on the PDF in the right hand collumn.
