The 3-part series will first provide audience members with a general understanding of this population, then describe how this group navigates school, training, and work, and conclude with an important consideration of how services can and should consider young adults' needs from a diversity, equity, and inclusion lens. Information from these webinars can help providers and policymakers better understand how to effectively support this population.
