Combining education and fieldwork, I created this multifaceted Capstone Project. I have included a legislative review of ILP and CWS. I conducted surveys of ILP youth and focus groups of social workers in three units of Monterey County DSES. I developed an analysis of the data gathered. With the research gathered primarily and secondarily, I created an ILP Tracking Database for following the outcomes of youth after foster care. These experiences and research also lead to recommendations for keeping up the tracking database and improving ILP training for foster youth. This Capstone fulfills the terms of the CSUMB Vision and several MLOs. The MLOs are documented in other sections. This Capstone reaches an at-risk population in the Monterey Community and seeks to improve their quality of life. This project also forms a link between CSUMB and DSES.
