What We Do

Youth and Community Engagement (YCE) Programs focus on helping all young people make a successful transition to adulthood in their communities.

Our Framework

MYTC is a network of youth leaders and public partners from across Maine that works to ensure that youth transitioning from the foster care system to adulthood have resources and personal connections they need to be successful.


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.
