Guideposts for Success

The Guideposts for Success are what research tells us all youth, including youth with disabilities, need to succeed. Based on an extensive literature review of research, demonstration projects and effective practices -- including lessons from youth development, quality education, and workforce development programs -- the Guideposts describe what all youth need for successful transition to adulthood: high quality standards-based education; career preparation and work-based learning;  opportunities to develop social, civic, and leadership skills; strong connections to caring adults, safe places to interact with peers, and access to a range of support services.
