Upcoming Webinar: "Drop-in Centers as a Low-Barrier Engagement Strategy for Transition-Age Youth and Young Adults"

Date:
Time: 10am – 11am PT / 1pm – 2pm ET

Pathways RTC's 2019 issue of Focal Point coming out in late April will focus on the evaluation of innovative transition programs across the country. For this webinar, we're going to focus on two examples of programs featured in the issue that are innovative in their low-barrier approach. Both Massachusetts, with its YouForward Healthy Transitions project, and Kentucky with its Transition Age Youth Launching Realized Dreams (TAYLRD), use drop-in centers as a way to engage transition-age youth and young adults. Join us for this webinar to hear more details about how these two state programs have implemented drop-in centers as part of their success.

Presenters:

  • Betsy Edes, YouForward Program Director, and Wendy Mancia, Peer Mentor – YouForward program in Massachusetts.
  • Kate Tilton, TAYLRD Project Director, and Will McPheeters, Peer Support Specialist – TAYLRD program in Kentucky
