About the Symposium
Hosted in February 2017 by the Northern California Training Academy, the Transition Age Youth and ILP Youth Symposium examined outcome data of youth in care impacted by extended foster care in California, reviewed and clarified policy updates, and explored some of the unexpected consequences of extended foster care legislation. In addition, the symposium offered counties an opportunity to share and learn from one another's strategies and programs they have developed to serve youth in care.
About Extended Foster Care and AB 12 in California
Assembly Bill 12 was signed into law on September 30, 2010, and took effect on January 1, 2012. AB 12, and the subsequent AB 212, implement provisions of the Federal Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act of 2008 (PL 110-351) to improve outcomes for youth in foster care. A provision of the Federal Fostering Connections to Success law permits states to extend Title IV-E assistance to eligible child welfare or probation youth who remain in foster care up to age 21.
