MOPD Youth in Transition Summits

MOPD hosts two annual community-focused Summits. These events are convened to assist young people with disabilities (and their families), particularly SSA beneficiaries, as they begin the transition from high school to post-secondary education and/or job training and placement. These Summits serve as a "connector" for youth to available resources within the community to support their attainment of self-sufficiency.
