Foster Youth Services Coordinating Program

The Foster Youth Services Coordinating Program (FYSCP) works collaboratively with local school districts, child welfare agencies, foster care agencies, probation, post-secondary institutions, caregivers, and community organizations with the goal of improving the educational gap for foster youth. The FYSCP goals include: 

  • Attend school-based intervention meetings to advocate for appropriate services.

  • Ensure school records are obtained to establish appropriate placements.

  • Increase the stability of placements for foster children and youth.

  • Expedite the transfer of educational records.

  • Strengthen the collaboration among our partners.

  • Coordinate tutoring, mentoring, vocational training, emancipation services, training for independent living, and other related services.
