What We Do
The Collaborative focuses its efforts in three key areas:
Southern Maine Youth Transition Network
The Southern Maine Youth Transition Network (SMYTN) brings together youth and adult community members to assist youth currently or formerly in foster care with employment and post-secondary education.
The partners of the Maine Youth Transition Collaborative, both youth and adults, are the most important resource for youth as they transition from foster care to adulthood. Besides these partner relationships, we have assembled some additional resources that might be of use to youth and the people who help them.
How You Can Help:
MYTC welcomes new partners who are interested in helping youth transition to their communities around the state. You can help through offering your expertise, time, or resources. Young people benefit from knowing caring adults who can support them in post-secondary education or the workplace. Resources invested in the Collaborative will enable both public and private dollars to further support local community networks, youth leadership, financial education, and the Opportunity Passport™, a matched savings program for youth.
