June 2013

The Children Youth and Family Collaborative (CYFC) will expand its Academic Remediation, Intervention, Support Services and Education Program (ARISSE) for foster and probation youth countywide. The goal is to increase the odds that these youth will graduate from high school, go to college and transition successfully into adulthood. Working in partnership with the Los Angeles County Departments of Children and Family Services and Probation and multiple school districts, CYFC program staff and a multi sector Care Team provide academic intake assessment and individualized service plans; intensive individual and small group tutoring and academic remediation; pre emancipation planning and California High School Exit Exam prep; and college planning, post-emancipation support services and case management through college. In each of the next two years, 400 additional foster youth will be served at 15 schools with high concentrations of foster youth in four school districts – Compton, Los Angeles, Long Beach and Palmdale.
