The Transition Academy is a post-secondary navigation tool that students and families can use to explore college and career opportunities. This model is innovative because it transfers the knowledge and power from social services, schools and personal networks to where it rightfully belongs – in the hands of families.

VISTA will help TTA develop a program to identify and serve ELL students with disabilities and their families’ needs as the student ages out of school district services. This VISTA will research and map Kansas City’s resources for ELL students and build a partnership between TTA and the resources.
