Adult Life Transitions (High School Students)
Preparing for adult life through Community Connections and Employment Preparedness

By starting this process early, students acquire the knowledge and skills to achieve their goals. Our transition process empowers students to move successfully from school to employment, independent living and community participation based on the student's interests, preferences and abilities.
