The Heart of Georgia Transition Alliance works to improve transition services for individuals with disabilities through activities that will bridge the gap among community options, prospective employers and post-secondary institutions in the Heart of Georgia area. The goals set out by the Heart of Georgia Transition Alliance workgroup will increase effective transitioning for individuals with disabilities. The mission for the alliance is to build bridges, shape futures and facilitate a culture of success for individuals with disabilities.
Bridge the information and services gap by encouraging agencies to work together and to share knowledge in order to raise the number of students with disabilities who graduate and who enter the work force
Reduce gaps attributable to budget constraints through grant writing, fund raising, etc…
Influence this region to adopt, expand, and support programs and services which can be sustainable over time so that students with disabilities and their families can receive consistent transition programming and information from early on
Develop transportation options so that individuals with disabilities can access services and employment
Improve the individual education and transition planning processes so that planning meetings and student interviews can be positive and effective transition tools
Develop a culture among schools and employers in which individuals will be educated and employed based on their abilities rather than excluded based on disability
Support, empower, and partner with families to raise awareness of resources and information concerning transition so that individuals with disabilities will become productive citizens.
It's all about teamwork! To reach our goals, HGTA partnering agencies must work together. Click for More Information About the HGTA Projects.
