Beginning September 2004, the Institute for Disability Studies has served as the local evaluator for the Mississippi Model Youth Transition Innovation (MYTI) Project. MYTI is a national Social Security demonstration project designed to assist young people to become employed through transition interventions from school to work and reduce reliance on public benefits.  The project currently operates in Harrison and Jackson County School Districts. The project is operated by the Mississippi Department of Rehabilitation Services and is now in its fourth of five years. A yearly evaluation report is compiled from data from project participants, parents, teachers, administrators, and others. For more project information, visit www.myti.org.
