Annually 26,000 young people age out of the foster care system, often with limited resources and relationships to ensure they successfully transition into adulthood. Providing the necessary supports and guidance to ensure these young people can navigate their own pathway to long-term success is critical. Research has demonstrated the effectiveness of Youth Villages’ YVLifeSet program by providing intensive, individualized, and clinically focused case management, support, and counseling has demonstrated excellent results with young people transitioning out of foster care or with a history of involvement in the juvenile justice system.
