Young Women's Transition Program

building entrance 

The Young Women’s Transition Program, known as YWTP, is located in Albany next to Oak Creek Youth Correctional Facility.

YWTP is for youth who are preparing to transition from an OYA youth correctional facility back to the community.

The goal of YWTP is to create a cohesive, supportive, and therapeutic community that emphasizes education, relapse prevention, and other skills the youth need to become successful, independent adults.

Who is Eligible?

YWTP can house up to 14 youth, ages 15 to 24.

While youth are at Oak Creek, the members of their multidisciplinary team (MDT) will determine whether YWTP is an appropriate transition option for the youth.

Youth may be eligible for YWTP if:

  • they have shown by their changes at Oak Creek that they have the ability to make progress in their treatment;
  • they have shown that they are ready to be even more active in their treatment; and
  • they have shown that they are ready to learn and demonstrate the skills they will need to transition back to the community.
