​​Person-centered planning will be provided to advise transition-age people on educational and career choices, replication of the College for Life Program at a new site and developing and implementing training in best practices in transition and family financial literacy.  Financial literacy education will take place through the Madison County Transition Planning Committee partnership with a co-sponsored event and a publication developed with grant funding made available for IEP meetings as part of the student’s transition plan.  Transition-age people will have the opportunity to participate in a certificate program. This new approach to supporting post-secondary employment options offers an opportunity to complete a program and an opportunity to continue to attend if desired.
