Transition Services


Game Plan for Success (GPS) program provides professional support for students to achieve their highest potential through our many in-house resources and our diverse referral network.  Reentering the community takes conscious effort on their part.  We provide guidance and help them achieve their goals.  


Game Plan for Success objectives can be summed up in five areas: 

1.      Identify needs by completing the Risk Needs Responsivity Assessment 

2.      Establish relevant short- and long-term goals  

3.      Engage in Contra Costa Adult School course offerings and in-custody programs that will help them achieve their goals  

4.      Create a weekly schedule
