Spotlight on Youth
Of the nearly 400,000 children in foster care in the United States, many are between the ages of 12 and 17. This subsection of the foster care population has unique needs and faces distinct challenges. This month, CBX looks at the programs that monitor youth outcomes and encourage their social and emotional development, a report on one State's work to extend foster care to age 21, and a series of tip sheets for youth on addressing various life transitions.
