TRANSITION YOUTH TO ADULT LIFE

Transition

Change can be exciting and challenging for lots of people. The transition from high school life to life as an adult can be particularly so. It is a time for you as the person leaving high school and your family to make important decisions about the future. These decisions include making choices about education, employment, volunteering, relationships, community participation and social involvement.

Person-directed planning is an interactive, dynamic, person-focused, ongoing process that helps bring clarity to the decision-making process. It enables the identification of opportunities and experiences that are available in your community. It will help you to prepare, plan, set goals and take action to assist with a successful transition into life as an adult. Understanding and undertaking the steps involved in person-directed planning is often the fist step required to building a good life in the community.
