TAY Immersion Training
TAY Immersion Training is a customized workshop that immerses participants in the principles and practices of transition-age youth services. Some of the topics covered include understanding what it means to "meet a young adult where they are,” determine service and treatment based on abilities and strengths, focusing on overall wellness and health, and mentoring and creating supportive relationships.
The training, offered in both Lancaster and Long Beach, is recommended for staff, supervisors, administrators, mental health and adult system of care directors, and partners (including housing providers and law enforcement).
