Who and What is YTP?

  • The Youth Transition Program (YTP) is a comprehensive transition program for youth with disabilities operated collaboratively by Vocational Rehabilitation Services (VR), the Oregon Department of Education (ODE), the University of Oregon (U of O), and local school districts statewide in Oregon. The purpose of the program is to prepare youth with disabilities for employment or career related post-secondary education or training. YTP will be funding the purchase of monthly food with monies provided by Vocational Rehabilitation.  We appreciate their continued support of our program and our local youth.
