Transitional Aged Youth
A bridge from youth to independence
Aspiranet’s Transitional Aged Youth programs are a bridge between foster care and independence.
We are dedicated to helping our youth develop necessary life skills, self-reliance, and confidence so they can achieve their goals for the future.
We collaborate with a statewide network of partners to ensure that youth who are aging out of foster care are equipped to navigate the hurdles of young adulthood and become productive members of their communities.
“Helping a youth transition into adulthood is a big responsibility, and I’m grateful every day I get the chance to do it."
— Samantha LaGrasse, Transitional Aged Youth Division Director
We help with basic needs like transportation and housing, as well as mental health and emotional support.
And we assist youth in securing a safe place to live, ongoing education, job readiness training and employment.
Our programs are a vital launching pad, helping youth lift off to pursue their life dreams and exercise their full potential.
