Center for the Future of Arizona and Arizona Town Hall are leading a year-long community engagement project designed to bring visibility, spark dialogue, and motivate action to ensure more successful transitions of young people with disabilities — driven by their dreams, desires, and strengths — into postsecondary education and career pathways. Together, we are bringing trusted data to inform and prompt dialogue, engaging across sectors to understand the challenges and opportunities for action, amplifying the voices of young people with disabilities, and their families, in generating solutions, and identifying where action is needed. In this session, we invite you to join us in this journey and offer your input and perspectives as we work together to activate community-led solutions to ensure equitable access to opportunity.
