"Work Early, Work Often” Awareness Campaign

October 04, 2015

The Youth Transitions Collaborative is a powerful community of more than 45 organizations that share a common mission: to empower young people with disabilities as they enter adulthood and the world of work. Bringing together the collective resources of regional and national organizations, the Collaborative focuses on transitions related services, research, best practices and projects to help young people with disabilities build paths to independence. The latest resource from the Collaborative is “Work Early, Work Often,” a video-based campaign that highlights the importance of work and work-based experiences in an individual’s transition to adulthood, particularly for young adults with disabilities. Three storylines, each focusing on a different subject and narrative, reflect perspectives from key audiences that are part of the transition journey. To watch the videos individually or as a series, visit www.thenytc.org or www.youtube.com/thenytc.
