Youth Transitions Program

The Youth Transitions Program (YTP) aims to provide vulnerable students (ages 12-19) support at critical academic transition points with the community support they need for educational attainment and future success.

Through a trauma-informed and strengths-based approach, students develop life skills, gain resiliency, cultivate a positive mental well-being and develop the capacity to reach their fullest potential.
