This presentation included findings from the California Youth Transitions to Adulthood – commonly known as CalYOUTH – study of youth entering adulthood from foster care. Findings from interviews with youth when they were 19 years old (n = 611) and from web-based surveys of their county caseworkers (n = 295) were shared and discussed, highlighting findings with implications for practice with youth in extended foster care. CalYOUTH youth survey results are also available at the county level for counties with 10 or more participating youth. The presentation provided participants with information about opportunities to discuss CalYOUTH results from their own county.
