Regional Transitional Navigator

It’s easy to get lost along the way to independence and adulthood. Regional Transition Navigators (RTNs) can help map the way.

The Regional Transition Navigator program is designed to provide information, training, and resources/services to youth and young adults 14-25 years of age who are at risk. This service is free for participants.
