Aging-out or Growing Together; Flipping the Youth Services Paradigm to Better Support Young Adulthood
This 5-part learning series is an open forum and discussion group for agencies and individuals that serve transitional aged youth and young adults. We will delve into how our collective organizational values, implementation strategies, program design, and goals might expand to support the evolving, holistic needs of this age group.
Join the PS MHTTC in collaboration with diverse youth-serving organizations for a learning series every other month, starting on November 30th, that uplifts the complex and comprehensive needs of transition aged youth.
We will explore the creative ways youth-serving organizations are adjusting to best support them. Beyond exploring barriers to meaningful engagement and
service provision, this generative space will also unpack culturally and developmentally appropriate models that support young adults in attaining wellness and self-actualization through the format of guided conversation and promising-practice spotlights.
