Advice for youth from youth:
A toolkit produced by Pathways RTC provides advice for youth from youth who have transitioned out of foster care to independent living or who are preparing to transition. The toolkit is divided into two sections, (1) a section with quotes such as "When it comes to money, I was never told...," and (2) suggestions for young people about how to succeed in transition.
Things People Never Told Me is available on the Pathways RTC website:
