The Foundation's Jim Casey Youth Opportunities Initiative offers a comprehensive financial education curriculum aimed at helping youth from foster care grow their financial aptitude and make better financial decisions. In addition to the main curriculum, the Foundation provides a list of additional resources for young people and those who work with them.
Because foster parents play a critical role in supporting children in foster care, who often have experienced trauma, the Casey Foundation developed ARC Reflections, a nine-session program that child welfare agencies can use to train foster parents to better care for children who have had traumatic experiences.
The Trauma Systems Therapy for Foster Care (TST-FC) training curriculum gives child welfare agencies a tool that foster parents can use to support children in their care and help them heal.
The Casey Foundation's Jim Casey Youth Opportunities Initiative leverages its hands-on work across 16 states, the latest adolescent brain research and direct feedback from young people to drive state policy and practice improvements that help young people make successful transitions from foster care to adulthood.
