New Podcast - Improving Outcomes for Older Youth

Older youth often age out of the foster care system without the tools and resources needed to successfully transition to adulthood. CASA and GAL volunteers that have been trained with the National CASA Fostering Futures curriculum are more aware of the needs of older youth and are better able to work alongside them to realize better outcomes. In this podcast, four staff members from the Essex County CASA program in Newark, NJ, discuss their experiences implementing Fostering Futures and how they are tracking and documenting outcomes.
