It is always important that youth have a voice in their transition process. Now there is a National Community of Practice (CoP) on Transition and they have webinars designed with how to get that youth voice involved. Here are the details:
On February 13, 2014 at 2:00 PM EST, the National Community of Practice (CoP) on Transition is sponsoring the first of three webinars on Youth Role in Transition Planning for professionals in the field. Through the personal stories and insights of youth from Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Hampshire, Michigan, Virginia, and Washington, DC webinar participants will learn about:
• The youth experience and role in transition
• The power of authentic youth engagement, self-determination and leadership in transition
• Ideas for how to best support youth in the transition process
Visit the wiki page for more information about the future youth-led webinars:

• 3rd Youth Webinar: Change the Picture, you are invited to join with youth discussing ways to improve the transition process and provide more opportunities for youth voice (April 2014).
