Youth Workshops & Trainings

The intent of these workshops and trainings is to teach youth (14 - 26 years) with disabilities how to self-advocate. 

Self-Advocacy is learning how to speak up for yourself, making your own decisions about your own life, learning how to get information so that you can understand things that are of interest to you, finding out who will support you in your journey, knowing your rights and responsibilities, reaching out to others when you need help and friendship, and learning about self-determination.
