The Center for Advancing Policy on Employment for Youth (CAPE-Youth) is performing a research study of best practices in interagency collaboration among state agencies serving transition-age youth and young adults with disabilities. Go to the CAPE-Youth website for more information on how to participate in the study.

The study will help CAPE-Youth develop insights which will be shared with state policymakers to inform efforts to further strengthen the capacity of youth-serving systems (i.e., vocational rehabilitation, social security, workforce development, education, juvenile justice, child welfare, developmental disabilities agencies, mental health agencies, and other agencies likely to serve youth with one of WIOA's defined "barriers to employment").
