Young Adult Transition Program (YATP)

  • Our mission is to provide the foundation for young adults, through community-based learning, to achieve their potential as they transition from school to community participation and life management.  The Young Adult Transition Program (YATP) fosters the interaction of our students and their community. Students provide diversity within the work force and a personal touch in the work environment. Positive employer/employee relationships are established during the interaction of YATP students and members of the community.

    The Young Adult Transition Program (YATP) was established in 2000 to serve the needs of young adults who qualify for Special Education, have completed a high school program, and require more intense services beyond that program. The purpose of the program is to provide instruction in the areas of transition, as well as to introduce the students and parents to available support services.  The YATP provides opportunities for young adult learners with more involved disabilities to live, work, interact socially, and access leisure activities in the community so that productive routines and relationships can be established. A team composed of parents, young adults, local and/or state personnel agencies, and school staff collaborate to help the young adult make a successful, supported transition from school to adult life.
