Transition programs for youth are more effective and more efficient when existing services are accessible and duplication of effort is minimized. VITC is committed to promoting successful transition outcomes for youth by providing leadership and innovation in employment, education, and community support systems that can influence success for all students in transition.
Additionally, Virginia's Intercommunity Transition Council is committed to promoting partnerships and influencing linkages that result in transition service networks for coordinating person-centered services.
