The Youth Leadership Forum (for high school junior and senior students with disabilities) is a project of the Washington State Governor’s Committee on Disability Issues and Employment - and they are looking for future community leaders!
The 18th Annual Youth Leadership Forum for high school students with disabilities is a 5-night, 6-day leadership program. Students serve as delegates from their communities and cultivate their potential leadership, citizenship, and social skills, while gaining access to vital resources related to assistive technology, community support, and civil rights. Approximately 35-50 high school students with a disability will be selected to attend the forum, which takes place July 22-27, 2018 at The Evergreen State College (Olympia, WA). The deadline to apply is June 1, 2018. Attendance at the Forum is at no cost to the student/family! You can download the application here (scroll down to Youth Leadership Forum).
Please share with teachers, administrators, para educators, students, school districts, and other persons of interest.
