Youth Transition Program: Realizing Hopes and Dreams

The Youth Transition Program (YTP) is an Oregon Vocational
Rehabilitation Services program that serves youth with disabilities statewide. YTP operates as a partnership between OVRS and local school districts with a team from the University of Oregon contracted to
provide training and technical assistance. The purpose of the program is to prepare high school youth with disabilities for employment or career related post secondary education or training.  University of Oregon has been involved as the primary training and technical assistance provider since 1990. In addition to the training and technical assistance role, University of Oregon, through the College of Education’s Secondary Special Education and Transition Services Department has provided extensive program evaluation functions,
published numerous articles influenced by YTP outcomes, and also presented in a number of State and National level conferences. YTP was also recognized Nationally as an exemplary model of providing school-to-work services. This video provides a historical backdrop to YTP as it evolved serving over 8,000 young adults with disabilities in Oregon.
