Graduation from high school is an important time in a teen's life. It is a time full of possibilities, but also when many young people with disabilities need a little extra help.
The STARS Transitions Program offers services to youth and families to act as a stepping-stone between high school and the opportunities that lie ahead.
In the Transitions Program, STARS advocates for young people in high school through 18 months after graduation. A case manager is assigned to help individuals identify benefits, resources and advocacy services that may be available.
To help students set goals for their future, the Transitions Program facilitates assessments and interest inventories to guide them in determining the next steps in their lives, be it competitive employment, supported employment, work center, day treatment programs, volunteerism, post-secondary education or vocational tranining.
The Young Adult Transition Training Program (YATTP) is designed to enhance soft skills to help individuals become better prepared for a future in employment, day treatment programs or educational opportunities. The skills targeted in the YATTP Program include:
The YATTP Program is an after-school program offered 3 hours per day, or during school breaks in the fall, winter, spring and summer for 4 hours per day.
