When considering the options available to youth after high school, youth may feel overwhelmed. There are many career paths and educational or training programs available. This publication is intended to help youth think about their options and plan ahead. This publication examines the four following questions: 

  1. How can I learn to make choices that are right for me?
  2. What activities can I do during high school to help me get ready?
  3. What are my options after high school?
  4. How do I access other supports to be successful? 

This publication was co-written by members of the Youth Action Council on Transition (YouthACT). YouthACT is a national initiative to get more youth with disabilities and their allies involved as leaders who partner with adults and organizations to improve opportunities for youth to succeed in life. YouthACT is led by the National Collaborative on Workforce and Disability for Youth (NCWD/Youth) at the Institute for Educational Leadership (IEL) with funding from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP).
