Navigating the postschool transition
Anyone who has faced a transition can likely recall feeling anxious, confused, excited, and overwhelmed all at the same time. For some, the path may seem logical and straightforward; for others, it may seem daunting - or worse, unachievable. Successful transitions require comprehensive planning, good directions, regularly planned check-ins, and good guides along the way.
This website is designed to provide information, strategies, and resources to transition navigators—teachers, counselors, family members, and community providers—to guide youth on the move.
