Kaysie Getty

Senior Program Analyst

She, Her, Hers


I primarily work on Youth Thrive, CSSP’s Framework and Initiative for changing policy and practice to improve results for older children, adolescents, and young adults.

I do this work because

I am committed to helping young adults in child welfare have successful lives regardless of where they started and what their circumstances are.

I am most proud of

Building and leading the work of the NJ Department of Children and Families (DCF) Youth Council, made up of young people with lived experience.
