Guide to Mapping Community Assets for Transitioning Youth

Posted by Maisha Meminger - On October 14, 2010 (EST)

Guide to Mapping Community Assets for Transitioning Youth was developed in collaboration with FosterClub, a national network for youth in foster care, and the Fostering Connections Resource Center. This tool serves as companions to FosterClub’s Transition Planning Toolkit, a guide to help states implement the youth-directed transition plan mandates of the Fostering Connections Act. Mapping Community Assets helps state and community leaders systematically map the supports and services available to young people transitioning from care, so that young people, case workers, advocates, and other supportive adults will be able to effectively take advantage of all of the resources available to them.

Thanks for posting this. I especially appreciate that within each of the 10 domains of this Transition tool kit real stories & experiences from past FosterClub All-Stars and Outstanding Young leaders has been incorporated for other youth and child welfare professionals to gain an added insight on possible experience youth/alumni of foster care may face during their transitions out of the formal foster care system.
