A technical assistance meeting is held for federal agency staff, technical assistance providers, and state teams on an annual basis. This meeting provides an opportunity for participants to discuss the data collection and reporting process; observations and reflections on National Youth in Transition Database (NYTD) data from the most recent reporting period; and challenges, surprises, and successes that they encountered.
The 2011 NYTD Technical Assistance Meeting was held August 3-5 in Washington, DC. It was the first meeting at which findings from NYTD data were available for discussion and review. The 2011 meeting was also the first meeting at which youth were in attendance from almost every state as part of the state teams. Delegates aged 18 to 24 from approximately 45 states attended and actively participated in the meeting. Learn more about the importance of involving youth.
