The National Youth in Transition Database, or NYTD, is a tool for tracking services provided to young people transitioning out of foster care in the United States. NYTD helps assess how states are improving youth outcomes through these services.

The voices of those who experienced foster care play a major role in the data collected! By taking the NYTD Survey, you assist lawmakers and child welfare agencies to identify the needs of young people.  This information will then be used to help future youth as they transition out of foster care.

Want to learn if you are eligible to take the survey? Email us at or text us at 463-724-9655

States can use NYTD data to tailor services to better meet the needs of young people.
