Postsecondary preparation and transition activities, one of the 14 program elements for the WIOA youth program, are activities that help youth prepare for and transition to postsecondary education and training.  These services include helping youth explore postsecondary education options, including technical training schools, community colleges, 4-year colleges and universities, and Registered Apprenticeship programs.
Examples of other postsecondary preparation and transition activities include:
  • Assisting youth to prepare for SAT/ACT testing
  • Assisting with college admission applications
  • Searching and applying for scholarships and grants
  • Filling out the proper Financial Aid applications and adhering to changing guidelines
