The California Social Work Education Center (CalSWEC) at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Social Welfare, provides a number of child welfare-related training resources on its website, including a training designed to disseminate information about improving outcomes for youth exiting the foster care system and transitioning to adulthood.

  • Learning Objectives
  • Title IV-E Competencies
  • Lesson Plan
  • Training Activities
  • Handouts

The training activities were designed to last approximately 1.5 hours, and the handouts may be viewed online or printed.
