Who are potential collaborators?
There are many transition stakeholders who work with transition-age youth, each with their own niche of service provision. Often identifying state, regional and local transition stakeholders is challenging. In some areas, communities have built interagency collaboration by conducting community resource mapping to identify ways in which you might partner to meet the needs of youth. In other communities, the school system has compiled a directory of adult services providers. In other communities, there may be a state resource center that has developed resources with potential collaborators included.
