​​A whole life, person centered approach for transition age youth will be implemented by providing training, advocacy, and opportunities to allow for increased life choices.  Travel training and community-based instruction will be provided in collaboration with RIDES Mass Transit.  A discovery process that is comprehensive and tailored to individual needs will be provided. A finished product will identify strengths, preferences, needs, supports, barriers, risk factors/safety, relationships/social skills, financial literacy, transportation, current and secondary training/education, career and income, soft skills, health and well-being, communication, assistive technology, and choice/decision making for youth transition-age and family.
