The Starting Line program guides students through the important steps of identifying post-high school goals and learning the necessary skills to make a successful transition to adult life. The program consists of two student workbooks called Foundations and Fast Track. The workbooks can be used separately or in succession as a complete curriculum to prepare students for their transition to post-school life. Here is a quick summary about the Starting Line program:
The Starting Line Transition program introduces students to important vocabulary, concepts, skills, and necessary tasks related to making a successful transition to an independent, happy, and productive adult life.
In each workbook, students are guided through a series of assessments, activities, and tasks for (1) employment, (2) education/training, and (3) independent living. After completing the workbooks, students are better prepared and have the necessary skills and knowledge, which results in a more positive and productive transition to adult life.

Ideally, students are best served by beginning with the Foundations workbook as an introduction to the important vocabulary and concepts related to key areas of adult life. Then, we recommend following up with the Fast Track workbook as a comprehensive program to identify and achieve their goals for their transition to adult life.
Remember that these workbooks can be implemented as “stand alone” program or used in a holistic approach covering numerous years for preparing students for their transition to adult life.
