California Transition Alliance

Sue Sawyer, President

“Guiding and supporting youth to advocate for themselves, and empower them to make decisions.”

We are proud to induct the California Transition Alliance into the Susan Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame.

In 2005, the California Transition Alliance was incorporated as a non-profit organization with the mission to provide information, tools and resources that can be shared with teachers, parents, educators, and transition partners at the California Department of Rehabilitation and the Department of Developmental Services.

The California Transition Alliance has sponsored and organized five Bridge to the Future statewide Institutes on Secondary Transition. They provide training in secondary transition throughout the state. All of the Leadership team volunteer their time and are dedicated to helping youth achieve employment and transition from high school to education and training. They are committed to providing youth leadership opportunities and promoting youth engagement in creating resources to empower Youth to advocate for themselves and develop self determination skills. They host Youth-to-Youth forums as an essential component of statewide training.
