Tribal Exit Interview

An Oklahoma Succesful Adulthood (OKSA) Guide

The Exit Interview is conducted by the youth's worker to gather information about a youth’s perception of the time he or she has spent in care, and a means of documenting the skills a youth learned and services a youth received while in care. All Tribal custody and OKDHS youth should complete an Exit Interview if he or she leaves care while in an out-of-home placement. Exit Interviews should be started during the youth's 90 Day Transition Plan meeting, and completed 2 months prior to a youth exiting care at age 18, or 2 months prior to exiting from Voluntary Care. Youth can potentially receive up to $300 for completing an Exit Interview.
