Individual Development Accounts for Foster Youth | Audio

JW Player goes here


At least 26,000 young people who are 18 and older leave foster care without making a long lasting connection with a family.

Typically these kids step into adulthood without knowing how to apply for a job, get a loan, or apply to college or even cook.

In this StateCast, Nina Williams-Mbengue (NCSL Child Welfare Project) and Qiana Torres Flores (NCSL Working Families Project) talk about individual development accounts that encourage foster youth to manage and save their money for a better future.
