Know Before You Go started as a collaboration between the Alliance for Children’s Rights and Children’s Law Center after California extended foster care to age 21. The Alliance and CLC joined forces to create the Know Before You Go campaign to educate and support young adults transitioning from foster care to independence.

The mission of Know Before You Go is to empower youth to become their own advocates, armed with the knowledge and information they need to succeed in work, school and life. Know Before You Go breaks down complicated issues and helps youth tackle the barriers they face.
