About Impact VT

Impact VT is a tool to help you connect with resources in the community. It’s a one-stop site for finding new resources and what other young adults are saying about them. You can sort by categories –  housing, education, and money and food – read interviews done by other young adults and even get directions from where you are!

That’s not all. You can even how do I…? from topics like riding the bus system, short cooking videos, budgeting, and more.

ImpactVT.org is also partnered with the JOBS Program – Helping young adults through meaningful employment and life skills preparation for responsible independent living.

But we also want your help! Do you have ideas on how to improve the site in any way? Let us know!

Want to share a resource on the site by conducting an interview? Get involved now.

Impact VT was created through the Youth In Transition (YIT) grant.

Contact us any time to arrange a meeting to learn more about how we can help you manage important changes in your life, from finding an apartment, dealing with personal issues (all meetings are kept confidential) to training for a job and preparing for life after you complete your next big milestone.

You can get a hold of us by calling (802) 660-0580 x443 or by emailing us at info@impactvt.org. Please allow 24-48 hours for us to get back to you.

YIT is an acronym for Youth in Transition, a fancy phrase for anyone between the ages of 16 and 22 years old, the years of transitioning from child- to adulthood. The grant helps young adults become more prepared, self-sufficient, successful adults by helping young adults navigate this often difficult and uncertain time of life.

YIT support comes in many forms such as building a resume, finding and keeping a job, stabilizing housing, enrolling in health care coverage, finding a doctor or counselor, enrolling in life and job skills training, applying for 3 Squares (food stamps) or SSI benefits, managing or overcoming substance abuse issues,  enrolling in high school completion or GED courses, applying to college and financial aid, getting matched with a mentor, developing independence, and getting linked with additional community supports and services.

Sound too good to be true? Think you don’t qualify? Ask yourself this: Are you between the ages of 14 and 26?  Could you benefit from additional support?

If you answered yes, YOU QUALIFY FOR FREE YIT SERVICES.
