The Office of Program, Development and Research (OPDR) at the Social Security Administration (SSA) is pleased to announce that the new Youth Transition Demonstration (YTD) project sites have been selected. After a rigorous pilot operation period and assessment process, SSA OPDR staff and the evaluation team at Mathematica Policy Research (MPR) have selected the following three pilot projects for inclusion in the full YTD evaluation:

  • The Broadened Horizons Brighter Futures Program operated by Abilities, Inc; Miami Dade County, FL (Abilities)

  • The Career Transition Program operated by St. Luke’s House, Montgomery; County, MD (CTP)

  • Career Options operated by the Human Resources Development Foundation, West Virginia (HRDF)

The three new projects began full implementation in April 2008.
