Welcome to Oregon's Youth Transition Program (YTP) Website!

The purpose of the YTP is to prepare students with disabilities for employment or career related postsecondary education or training through the provision of a comprehensive array of pre-employment transition services and supports. The video below gives you a basic overview of YTP.

YTP Teams are encouraged to prioritize attending the training scheduled for their region if possible.

The MI Basic training program consists of a three-day introduction to the core processes and skills utilized in MI followed by a month of time to practice those skills.  The training is completed with a one-day training to consolidate the learning and make plans for future skill development. Learners are encouraged from the start to assume responsibility for their learning and to become better stewards of their skills and their practice.
