NEXT is a mobile responsive website to facilitate access to preventive services, including STD prevention, sexual health resources, and other social services for youth exiting supervised care systems (YESCS) like foster care and/or the juvenile justice system. NEXT provides these transitioning youth with access to a resource locator, information on youth’s personal rights (Know Your Rights), how to be an adult (#Adulting 101), and who to call in an emergency, to assist YESCS in planning their “next” steps. YTH worked alongside transitioning youth and case managers in Alameda County to design and develop NEXT content and visual design. With support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, YTH then conducted a mixed-methods evaluation to better understand YESCS services, needs, and resources and explore future opportunities for data collection among YESCS using mobile technology.
