Youth Progress

Opportunity Lives Here

At Youth Progress we believe that young people in the juvenile justice and foster care systems are leaders, scholars, artists, athletes and entrepreneurs.

What We Do

At Youth Progress we believe that young people in the juvenile justice and foster care systems are leaders, scholars, artists, athletes and entrepreneurs. Together, we are a diverse and inclusive community of staff and foster parents who provide young people with safe and stable housing and opportunities to grow, learn and succeed. We provide culturally responsive, trauma-informed, engagement-based, and youth-centered programs for young people 13-25 in the custody of the Oregon Department of Human Services or the Oregon Youth Authority.

We believe that we can do better as a state and that if we want to get serious about improving outcomes for kids in foster care we need to invest heavily into their success.
