Jim Casey Youth Opportunities Initiative

St. Louis, Missouri



The initiative helps young people make successful transitions from foster care to adulthood by improving policies and practices, promoting youth engagement, applying evaluation and research and creating community partnerships at the local, state and national levels. This three-year grant leverages the effectiveness of its network and supports the expansion of its program model to two additional states.
