Amy Dworsky

Research Fellow

Dr. Amy Dworsky is a Research Fellow whose research focuses on vulnerable youth populations–including youth aging out of foster care, homeless youth, and foster youth who are pregnant and/or parenting–and the systems in which those youth are involved. Dworsky is the Principal Investigator (PI) for an implementation evaluation of a home visiting pilot program for pregnant and parenting youth in foster care and a coinvestigator for Voices of Youth Count, a national research and policy initiative focused on ending youth homelessness. She is also working on a federally funded project conducting formative evaluations of independent living programs.

Dworsky has led numerous studies related to pregnant and parenting youth in foster care. These include an analysis of welfare services involvement among children born to foster care youth, a study of young parents who recently emancipated from foster care, and an implementation evaluation of a pregnancy prevention and sexual health training for caseworkers and foster parents. Dworsky was a coinvestigator of a longitudinal study of young people who aged out of foster care in Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin. Dworsky has been the PI for a study of housing programs for youth aging out of foster care, for a study of campus support programs for former foster youth, and for a study of an employment program for youth in foster care. Dworsky has worked on the development of an intervention strategy to improve the outcomes of foster youth at high risk of homelessness and led a comprehensive review of policies and programs designed to support youth transitioning out of foster care across the 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Dworsky has a PhD in Social Welfare from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, a Masters of Social Work from Syracuse University, and a Bachelor of Arts from Williams College.
