Transition Conferences

In by Paige Haberkorn

What are transition conferences?

Conferences where transition-age youth, families, and experts share information to help you successfully transition from school to adult life. Schools, agencies, communities, youth, and families plan the events. Conferences could be at the local, regional, state, or national level. Ideally, transition conferences…

  • Promote partnerships between youth, families, agencies, and schools.
  • Include youth and families as presenters.
  • Invite people to share what is working in transition.

Transition conferences results in…

  • Giving attendees information, resources, and program ideas that they can use to support successful practices in transition.
  • Participants learning about current research in transition to improve transition practices.
