Summer is an ideal time to expand transition activities for youth. There are fewer scheduling conflicts to avoid than during the school year, more jobs and work experience opportunities are available, and the break from classes offers a chance to test assistive technology in community settings. Perhaps most importantly, students who are involved in meaningful activities during their summers can gain 1–2 years of additional transition preparation time. This webinar session will explore ways to make the most of students’ summer breaks to prepare them for life after high school. Examples of activities and skills to learn within the activities will be suggested, including volunteer work; community recreation, classes and activities; and summer jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities – all with the goal of each student having a full and active day upon high school exit.

This is the fifth of five webinars in the TACE Transition Webinar Strand: Work Experiences for Youth.
