|2022 Summer Youth Leadership Programs: Application Deadline Extended!
We are excited to announce that two upcoming summer youth leadership programs are accepting applications. Partners for Youth with Disabilities (PYD) will host both, the 2022 Youth Leadership Forum (a virtual week-long conference) and Young Leaders Rising Program (a leadership series consisting of 4 modules).
The Youth Leadership Forum (YLF) is a multi-day conference for youth and young adults with disabilities. Participants build leadership skills and leave better prepared for future employment, higher education, and independent living. During the conference YLF participants have the chance to engage in discussions and workshops on topics such as: self-advocacy, disability pride, assistive technology, independent living, employment skills, career exploration, higher education, legislative advocacy, the Disability Rights Movement, and community participation. YLF 2022 will take place ONLINE from June 25 -June 30, 2022. Note that this year, Peer Leaders will receive a small stipend for their work.
Additional details about each role and the YLF application are at: Youth Leadership Forum – Partners for Youth with Disabilities (pyd.org)
