Ceres Unified Foster Youth- YOUR VOICE MATTERS!

California Youth Connection is excited to launch our #FosterStability COVID-19 Survey! This survey is intended for youth ages 14-24 yrs old who have experienced California’s Foster Care system. Our goal is to capture and elevate their experiences as it relates to COVID-19. The results will be shared with our brand new team of CYC members, the COVID-19 TaskForce who will shape and lead the organizations’ continued work on this. 


Are you a current/former youth who has experienced California’s Foster Care System between the ages of 14-24? 

1. TAKE THIS SURVEY: #FosterStability COVID-19 Survey 

2. Share with your peers! 

3. Repost it on your social media for additional entries into the weekly drawing! 


The foster care system is a temporary arrangement in which adults provide for the care of a child or children whose birth parent is unable to care for them.

When a child is in foster care this can affect his/her education due to circumstances beyond his or her control. By providing on-site services, students will have increased opportunities for success.

The foster youth liaison works with each foster youth student attending CUSD providing the following support:

  • AB490 –Immediate enrollment
  • Locate student records, transcripts/credits, IEPs, Ed rights holder, and other necessary information.
  • Monitors students attendance, grades, behavior
  • Liaison between, group homes, social workers, foster parents, and students.
  •  Collaborate with Special Education Program Specialist, Student Support Coordinator, and school site administrators and other CUSD staff.
