Our Team & Partners

The Transition Discoveries Team

Transition Discoveries is not your typical non-profit organization. We are a hub where like-minded people come together, thriving with a networked structure that moves away from traditional top-down models. As connectors, facilitators, and collaborators, we believe in the power of collective experience, understanding that collaboration from many minds produces outcomes greater than any one person. We foster a culture of co-creation, valuing every voice and perspective to enrich our shared vision. While we bring a wealth of experience, we don't label ourselves as "experts." Instead, we are lifelong learners, evolving to meet young people where they are, aiming not to lead but to walk alongside, empowering them to forge their unique paths!

There are four PILLARS or main things we care about:

  • Knowing Each Person: When thinking about the future it is important that all plans accurately reflect the youth’s personality, interest, experiences, and goals for the future. Every TD plan is personalized with vision boards and personalized plans and vision boards are all built by considering youth’s personalities, experiences, interests and goals for the future. 

  • Adult Allyship & Relationship Building: Our adult allies are critical throughout the process. They provide support, encouragement, and advocacy. They also engage youth in critical conversations and activities that drive self-awareness and empowerment. 

  • Youth Voice: We believe that youth deserve to be the drivers of their future, so everything we do prioritizes their voices, ideas, and experiences. Nothing about them without them. 

  • Doing What Works: We know what works. Everything we do is based on years of collecting data from youth, families, and community members based on their needs and what is most important to them. 

So, if you believe in teamwork and helping young people, come join us! We're all about making the world a better place together.



We have an amazing team, with shared values of TD. We believe in a youth-led, youth driven model of transition. Relationships and collaboration are the key to the success of building and expanding communities.
