15-page curriculum and guide for developing a psychoeducational group for youth transitioning out of the foster care system. The group has ten hour-long, weekly sessions for social workers, counselors, etc. to use in a school or community setting. The guide references evidence-based findings in the field.
Background: For many teens who “age out” of foster care, the system has no emancipation plan other than to declare the youth independent when they reach 18. As such, youth who transition out of foster care often feel unprepared and are at a higher risk of many adverse outcomes.
Topics: applying for a job, job training, budgeting, applying for college, applying for scholarships, and more.
