Transition Age Youth ECHO (TAY ECHO) brings together a multidisciplinary team of service providers and stakeholders serving youth impacted by systems. Through didactic training presentations and case-based learning from real-time situations of deidentified youth, TAY ECHO embraces the “all teach, all learn” approach in order to improve communication and collaboration across organizations. Collaboration minimizes service drop-off points while tracking data on the common barriers to success informs future policy. TAY ECHO emphasizes the importance of youth voice and choice and is supported and held accountable by an appointed youth board.
