About

We are the youth in care of New York State, promoting positive youth development and support adult/youth partnerships and adolescents in achieving successful outcomes. Learn more! ("What is YIP?" PDF)

Our mission is to enhance and advance the lives of today's and tomorrow's foster youth by supporting our sense of self and responsibility. To do this, we pledge to educate everyone involved in the various systems Youth In Progress members represent, to the realities of this experience.

Youth in New York State foster care who are interested in finding out more about YIP are encouraged to contact us for information.
