Youth Transition Services

Teens and young adults who are blind or visually impaired explore career options and successfully transition to independent living, college or the workforce in Wayfinder’s youth transition program. Through community-based workshops and summer programs, participants get hands-on experience, preparation and support to achieve their individual goals. Workshops are offered throughout California.

Young people ages 16-24 who are blind or visually impaired and are ready to take the next step towards independence.

Visually impaired since birth due to optic nerve hypoplasia (underdeveloped optic nerves), Javi wondered if he would be able to succeed in college, get a job and live on his own. Everything changed when he attended a weekend workshop presented by our youth transition services for the visually impaired.
