Youth Transition Services at SWCI

Come join our youth movement! SWCI is looking for youth to join our Youth Advisory Council to help guide our programs. We are seeking youth with disabilities that want to help educate their community on what it means to have a disability and how to live with the that disability successfully. Our Youth Services program is designed to support youth with disabilities as they transition to adult life. Youth Specialists collaborate with local schools districts, the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation and other non-profits to serve youth 14-24 with disabilities.

Our Youth Transition Services are funded by State and Federal grants.
