Support for young adults with disabilities
What is the Youth Navigator Program?
High school graduation is a traditional time of transition. However, for youth living with cerebral palsy and other disabilities, this transition is much more complicated as the graduate is no longer eligible for many through children’s services until the age of 18. Youth with disabilities and their families must find their way through an often bewildering array of adult services to arrange the supports that they need.
The Youth Navigator Program will help people with disabilities make a plan for the future. We can be there to help you fill out the overwhelming amount of paper work and applications, find meaningful employment, get education and live more independently
We are Currently Recruiting Ambassadors
Youth Navigator Ambassadors are youth, families and/or caregivers who have achieved the transition from youth to adult supports, and provide role modelling, success stories, and support for youth and families who are currently navigating the transition. Ambassadors provide positive examples of peers who have successfully navigated from child to adult resources and systems. Support from ambassadors may take the form of one-to-one feedback and conversation or more goal-oriented support through referrals and information.
