Making it Possible: Permanency Pathways for Older Youth in Care

The National Center for Child Welfare Excellence (NCCWE) is pleased to announce the release of the new curriculum, Making it Possible: Permanency Pathways for Older Youth in Care, which focuses on improving permanency outcomes for older youth in care. This curriculum seeks to shift long held assumptions about what can and cannot happen for older youth in care and provide concrete steps for achieving positive permanency outcomes. The curriculum was designed for one-day facilitation and consists of the following six modules: (1) Making Permanency Possible; (2) Permanency—How Did We Get Here?; (3) A Closer Look at the Meaning of Permanency; (4) Navigating the Permanency Pathways; (5) Engaging to Make it Possible; and (6) Transfer of Learning. Through these modules, participants will develop the knowledge and understanding of: federal, state, and local policies and legislation related to permanency for young people in out-of-home care; the definition of youth permanency and the importance of developing permanent connections; and the four permanency pathways for youth in foster care. Participants will also develop knowledge of how to engage and prepare youth for permanency. (2014)
