The Youth-In-Transition Worker will assist eligible youth in creating a Client Service Plan, outlining their goals, identifying their strengths and weaknesses and determining which resources and supports are needed to ensure success in adulthood.

Resources and supports may include:

  • Life Skills: budgeting, household management, health and well being
  • Housing Support: eligibility requirements, resources and applications
  • Educational Resources: exploring programs and schools, locating funding, applications
  • Employment and Training Resources: resume writing, interview skills, employment readiness

The Youth-In-Transition Program is a short-service program. Client Service Plans will be 6-12 weeks in duration, depending on the client’s needs. Each client that completes their Client Service Plan will receive a Certificate of Recognition. The Youth-In-Transition Program can provide financial skills training to help prepare youth for independent living and future endeavors.
