Transition Tool Kit
This Digital Library, kindly sponsored by Starbucks, was created in 2011 by the TILES program for the FND Youth Action and Advocacy Project. The purpose of this Transition Tool Kit is to put meaningful resources and information in the hands of youth across Florida just like you! You will find information related to transitioning from high school life to adulthood. We hope the articles, videos, and web links can help you through this stage as you enter into adulthood. The information provided is sorted into different topic areas; Transition Starters, Independent Living, Self Advocacy and Self Determination, Community Involvement, College and Post-Secondary Education, Employment and Job Skills.
