2018 PA Community on Transition Conference – Planning Today for a Winning Tomorrow – State College
July 25 - July 27
The vision of the PA Community on Transition is that all Pennsylvania youth and young adults with disabilities will successfully transition to the role of productive, participating adult citizens. Youth will be empowered to recognize their talents, strengths, and voice and have equal access to resources that promote full participation to the communities of their choice.
The primary purpose of the conference is to expand the capacity of schools, agencies, and communities, in partnership with youth, young adults and families, in promoting the successful transition of youth/young adults with disabilities to post-school outcomes of employment, post-secondary education and training, community participation and healthy lifestyles. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about effective practices to assist youth/young adults with disabilities to explore possibilities, to take advantage of their opportunities, and to actively advocate for their future.
