We’ve heard from many parents about the anxiety they feel as their child prepares to leave school and find a career. We’ve also heard from parents who have been through the process and found that ultimately it became an exciting time full of unexpected possibilities!
We are here to help guide you through the process, and make you aware of relevant supports within the community.
As we develop new resources we will share them on the site. We will also highlight the experiences of other students and parents who have successfully made the transition from school to work. What better way to prepare than to learn from those who have walked the path before you?
We want to hear from you: your questions, your ideas, your own unique experiences with your young person! Please reach out to us at anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
