National Youth in Transition Database

NYTD

The National Youth in Transition Database is a national study that (1) surveys youth about their thoughts and experiences of foster care services and (2) tracks the independent living services that youth receive. The South Carolina Department of Social Services and The Center for Child and Family Studies at the University of South Carolina are partners in this study, which is required by the US government.

By supporting NYTD, the Center supports children who are transitioning out of care into their adult lives, in all of its promise.
