Foundation Programs

The HSC Foundation works with a network of partners from across the country who bring unique expertise and resources to support young people with disabilities as they move to adulthood. Our work is centered on four primary programs.

National Youth Transitions Center

The National Youth Transitions Center works with young people with disabilities to create and live a self-directed path to adulthood and employment. The Youth Transitions Collaborative, a group of 45+ regional and national organizations, provides critical input to help shape and direct the National Youth Transition Center's planning and programming.

Life Enrichment Awards Program (LEAP)

The HSC Foundation’s Life Enrichment Awards Program (LEAP) works to enrich the lives of youth and young adults with disabilities by providing transition resources and services through a network of community partners in the Washington, DC area.

Advocates in Disability Award

The Advocates in Disability Award is a national award program that annually honors a young person with a disability between the ages of 14 and 26 who is dedicated to positively affecting the lives of people with disabilities and their families. The award program also supports an innovative project developed by the recipient to benefit the disability community.

Youth Transitions Fellowship

The Youth Transitions Fellowship provides a young adult with a disability the opportunity to gain professional experience with programs serving young people with disabilities through a 12-month paid fellowship in Washington, DC.
