On Monday, young people in Ottawa County have the chance to tackle real world problems and learn about resources, services, and programs in their area. The Future Transition Expo is aimed toward young adults with disabilities and their families.
It goes from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. Monday night at the Ottawa County Intermediate School District Educational Services Building in Holland.
The event invites students in 9-12 grade and young people who have graduated high school, along with their parents guardians, teachers, and others to learn about the transition into life after school. More than 20 community agencies will be there to talk about the services and resources available to people with disabilities as they get ready for the future.
There will be breakout sessions that allow attendees to learn about different areas of the transition process and get answers to their questions from experts in the field. The topics of discussion include Alternatives to Guardianship, Differences between High School and College, OAISD Post-High School Program Options, and Accessing Services and Opportunities through Vocational Rehabilitation.
The event is free, and no registration is required.
