TA Coalition Webinar: Peer Supports for Transition-Aged Youth

Transition-Aged Youth (TAY), including foster youth, youth who have been through the juvenile justice system, and youth with mental health diagnoses, have unique needs that are often unaddressed. At this crucial stage in development, TAY peer support programs allow young people to work with trained specialists in their own age group who have similar experiences, providing them with both the benefits of best practices and the connection with someone they relate to. Panelists will discuss their programs and experiences in addition to how participants can create similar programs in their communities.
