The Guideposts for Success - What All Youth Need to Successfully Transition into Adulthood
Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) work in the youth arena is based on the Guideposts for Success . The Guideposts represent what research and practice has identified as key educational and career development interventions that make a positive difference in the lives of all youth, including youth with disabilities. They were developed by ODEP in collaboration with one of its research and technical assistance centers, the National Collaborative on Workforce and Disability for Youth (NCWD/Youth) , following an extensive review of research and best practices in education and workforce development.
The Five Guideposts for Success:
- School-Based Preparatory Experiences
- Career Preparation and Work-Based Learning Experiences
- Youth Development and Leadership
- Connecting Activities
- Family Involvement and Supports
The complete Guideposts for Success document as well as an explanation of their underlying key principles and who should use them and how, is available on the NCWD/Youth Website
