Participants in the Center for Independent Living Options' Youth Overcoming Life Obstacles program model their new shirts.

Young people with disabilities, whether physical or cognitive, need extra help getting ready to transition from a school environment, where things are carefully ordered, to the world of work and independent living.

That’s why the Center for Independent Living Options created YOLO, Youth Overcoming Life Obstacles, for teens and young adults between 14 and 21.

Joining "Cincinnati Edition" to discuss the Youth Overcoming Life Obstacles program are Center for Independent Living Options Director Debbie Moorehous and Youth Transition Coordinator Jennifer Kroell.

Tune in to "Cincinnati Edition" July 10 starting at 1 p.m. to hear this segment.
