Foster Club's Transition Toolkit

Resource Author/Owner/Service Provider

Foster Club

Description

The FosterClub Transition Toolkit can help foster youth and the adults supporting them develop a comprehensive transition plan. This Transition Toolkit is built around ten different domains (or topics): finances + money management; job + career; life skills; identity; permanence; education; self-care + health; housing; transportation; community; culture and social life. In this Toolkit, each of these domains is shown as a line on a subway map. The “subway” map will give you a look at everything you’ll need to plan for on your way to successful life on your own. The Toolkit also provides with transition planning worksheet templates.
