What is the Role of a Transition Coordinator?
The transition from youth to adulthood is particularly important and can be complex. Community Living North Bay offers support to assist in facilitating the ‘transition’ from high school to adulthood. A Transition Coordinator can provide support to youth and their family/support network to plan for their future and connect them with the appropriate community resources, members, agencies, programs and funding applications. Topics that are commonly identified as areas needing support are education, employment/volunteering opportunities, community connections, independent living, rights, and advocacy.
The Transition Coordinator will collaborate with the youth, their family, school representatives, and other support personnel to assist them through the transition planning process. They will draw upon the strengths and contributions of each team member to ensure a coordinated effort. The coordinator will provide direction and support to guide the team and youth/family to accomplish the outcomes set out by the transition plan.
