The purpose of the article was to identify key features within research-based school-to-career programs that were linked to positive employment outcomes for youth disabilities. Three key program features were identified and discussed that could be incorporated into the practices and programs of schools and communities to support the employment outcomes of youth with disabilities. Program features included having a youth-centered approach, engaging in professional collaborations, and a close, caring relationship between youth and an adult professional. Recommendations for practice are provided and organized by these three key features. (Contains 1 table.)
