Career Investigations for Transitioning Youth (C.I.T.Y.)

May 21, 2013

The Career Investigations for Transitioning Youth (C.I.T.Y.) Program is a partnership among the George Washington University, the Kingsbury School, a school for students with learning disabilities, and the HSC Foundation. The C.I.T.Y. Program was developed to provide a “how to” model for schools and universities to positively impact the transitioning of youth with high incidence disabilities.

The C.I.T.Y. Program is distinctive in that it:

  • Addresses the career challenges individuals with high incidence disabilities face by providing community-based career awareness, exploration and preparation experiences on a university campus.
  • Is supported by a four-year transition curriculum.
  • Is centered on an on-going assessment process intertwined in the transition curriculum that aids the student to a successful post-secondary transition.
  • Allows students to have an opportunity to intern on a university campus in a specific field
