The purpose of the YTP is to prepare students with disabilities for employment or career related postsecondary education or training through the provision of a comprehensive array of pre-employment transition services and supports. This video below gives you a basic overview of YTP.

Vocational Rehabilitation


Rainier YTP partners with St. Helen’s Vocational Rehabilitation

Our joined forces provide a multitude of resources and opportunities. Signing up for VR through YTP allows you to meet with the Transition Specialist for services instead of needing to go to St. Helens. We work as a team.
