Setting up for Success

Tools for Life is for transitioning youth with disabilities and all who support them. Attendees include educators, special educators, therapists, counselors, service providers, job developers, other rehabilitation specialists, and especially high school students with disabilities and their families.

Each year, the Fair is held in a different city in Idaho. This helps to make it more accessible to students and families across the state. The Fair travels between North Idaho, Boise and southeast Idaho.
