In 2004, Federal, states and local agencies came together around their shared interest in improving school and post-school outcomes for youth. Today, four federal agencies, 10 states and many national organizations are joined in the community. Together, they focus on issues including:

  • Behavioral/MH and Transition,
  • Common Core (College and Career Ready) Standards and Transition,
  • Employment,
  • Increasing Accessible Transportation,
  • Outreach to Child Welfare, Juvenile Justice, and Mental Health,
  • P-16/P-20: ‘Cradle to College and Career',
  • Post-secondary Options,
  • Self-determination and Youth Investment, and
  • Transitioning Youth on the Autism Spectrum Disorder
