Youth Leadership Network

With October being disability awareness month in Massachusetts the Americans with Disabilities Act is an important part of that awareness. It is also important to be aware of potential changes to the ADA and people with disabilities. Join us in October to talk about some of the myths and truths behind these changes.

What is the Youth Leadership Network?

Through the support of Mass Rehab Commission, the YLN promotes self-advocacy and self-awareness for teens and young adults with disabilities ages 16 to 21 with opportunities for youth 14 to 26. This is a state-wide initiative with meetings and events held in Boston, Springfield, Worcester, and East Bridgewater. This is an opportunity for youth to make friends in their local communities and within the larger Network group. Check out our Photos from various meetings and YLN activities.

All groups and events feature fun, hands-on activities and interactive discussions about communication, teamwork, community service, disability rights, career interests and employment skills.

Pizza and refreshments will be served. New and returning members are always welcome to bring a friend. Parents/guardians are also encouraged to stay and hear from dynamic speakers throughout the year.

We hope to see you there!
