Youth Transition Services

OUR S.T.E.M PROJECTS

In  2009, U.S. President Barack Obama created the "Educate to Innovate" campaign to motivate and inspire students to excel in STEM subjects, we took it upon ourselves to create innovative and relevant projects focused around STEM.

  • Post Secondary Education

    As a student approaches the time to leave high school, it is important that preparations for adult life are well underway.

    For early transition planning and active participation in decision making to occur for students with disabilities, members of the planning team need to be well-informed about the student’s abilities, needs, and available services.

    Our specialized staff will work collaboratively with the youth member and their support network to ensure an effective transition into post-secondary education or employment.

  • S.T.E.M

    The goal is to get American students from the middle of the pack in science and maths to the top of the pack in the international arena.

    In a recent survey conducted by our leadership team, we determined that the statistic of disabled students in STEM (in Los Angeles County, but likely in other regions as well) is not even measurable or not even a statistic.

  • Support Group

    The support group is facilitated by a youth staff member but youth-led and youth-driven.

    We provide a safe space for youth to convene and connect with other peers.  During our support group meetings, which are held twice a month, youth will engage in: informational workshops (friendships, relationships, communication, role models, problem solving, money management, etc.)

    team-building exercises and socialization, civic engagement and self-advocacy, disability identity and pride, and recreational opportunities such as topic specific movies (STEM, disability, disability history) or outings using public transportation, such as bowling, ballpark or lunch/dinner.
