Our Youth in Custody (YIC) Check and Connect Mentors provide assistance for students attending a JSD school who have been placed in a foster care situation.

YIC Check and Connect Mentors work in a supportive and cooperative effort with classroom teachers and state case workers.  Mentors act as a liaison between the school, the case worker and the foster homes as well as any other agency that may be involved with the student.
