National Youth in Transition Database

National Youth in Transition Database (NYTD) is a national survey to assess older youth and young adults and the services they receive as they transition out of the foster care system.  Older youth and young adults will be contacted to complete the survey right after their 17th, 19th and 21st birthdays.

Make sure you sign up for a free FosterClub Membership, and take the NYTD survey when contacted by your independent living coordinator.

Why does NYTD matter to you?

As current or former foster youth and young adults, the NYTD survey helps Idaho receive funding to pay for housing, education, and other independent living programs. 

You hold the answers that NTYD needs. Your story can help improve the foster care system for thousands of young people across our nation. Your input and answers to the survey will help Idaho create better ways to ensure success for young adults aging out of the foster care system. Your information will be kept private and safe. 

By participating in NYTD we are learning: Which services are beneficial to youth as they transition out of foster care? How our youth are really doing once they are out on their own? Each state is required to track and report services and outcomes for foster teens and young adults, which is why we need your help!

What do I do?
Complete the survey when asked by your independent living coordinator. By answering a few questions over the phone, in person, or by mail, you can:
* Get involved
* Leave a legacy for your brothers and sisters in foster care
* Improve your community
* Use your experience to really make a difference
Get involved!
If you want to be involved in improving life for foster youth and young adults NYTD presents an opportunity to get involved.
