Transition Tool Kit

U.S. Department of Education

Purpose of this Toolkit

Currently there are over 400,000 children and youth in our Nation’s foster care system and every year, more than 23,000 individuals "age out" of the foster care system.1

The passage to adulthood is challenging for anyone, but for youth in foster care it can be especially lonesome, confusing, and uncertain.

Despite facing significant challenges, youth currently or previously involved in the foster care system demonstrate extraordinary courage, determination, and resilience. It is important to provide these youth, and the supportive adults who work with them, the resources and assistance needed to achieve stability and independence.

The U.S. Department of Education (ED), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), and youth and practitioners involved in the child welfare system, developed this toolkit to help youth access the resources needed to successfully transition into adulthood, continue on to postsecondary education, and meaningful careers.
