Youth Transition Funders Group

The Youth Transition Funders Group (YTFG) is a national network of foundations whose mission is to help all youth make a successful transition to adulthood by age 25.

This investment agenda was developed by funders, leading researchers, policy leaders, and young adults to leverage and advance new and emerging interest within and outside the federal government and research and advocacy communities to better understand and support holistic approaches to improving the well-being of vulnerable youth and young adults.

Building upon work underway in the fields of child welfare, youth justice, education, health, and mental health, YTFG proposes a common framework to describe well-being for vulnerable youth and young adults and take advantage of growing knowledge and understanding of youth who experience multiple systems.
