YiPPE Program

Youth in Partnership with Parents for Empowerment is a Leadership Development Opportunity for Youth with Disabilities and Their Parents to Learn About the Transition Process in a Unique Way

YiPPE is a group of youth and their parents who meet together five times during the year. They will hear from speakers and take part in hands-on activities in parallel programs centered around transition. While some topics may overlap, parents will be able to enjoy their own sessions while their youth are learning similar information in a youth-friendly format.


The YiPPE Program Assists Youth Ages 15-20 to:

  • Make decisions for themselves
  • Get involved in their school & community
  • Be as independent as possible
  • Become self-advocates & self-determined
  • Prepare for work and/or college
  • Learn what the future could hold for them
  • Get to know other youth, make friends & have fun

The YiPPE Program Assists Parents to Plan for Their Youth’s Future by:

  • Enhancing their leadership, communication, & social skills
  • Providing information in the areas of health care, employment, education, inclusion, legislation, & adult services
  • Connecting parents to national, state, & local resources that will help their youth make a smoother transition
  • Connecting them to a network of parents who have children with disabilities going through transition
