Are you a high school junior or senior with a disability? Apply to attend the DOR’s Youth Leadership Forum (YLF) in summer 2015.
YLF is a fun, five day career and leadership training program for students with disabilities. Accepted students get to stay in a college dorm, meet other high school kids with disabilities, and learn from adults with disabilities who are leading exciting lives. Previous attendees swear it is a life-changing experience that leads to lasting friendships and more independence. The program features information, speakers, activities, and resources relating to employment, education, independence and adaptive technology.
YLF will be held July 27-31, 2015 in Sacramento. Students will stay on campus at California State University, Sacramento.
Applications are now available and are due February 27, 2015. Please help us spread the word about this exciting opportunity.
