YO! connects, organizes and educates youth with disabilities!

YO! gives youth leadership opportunities, social networks, resources and more.

YO! is for youth with disabilities to be PROUD of who we are and what we can achieve!

Some of the amazing activities of YO! are:

YO! Volunteer Corps: the YO! Volunteer corps focuses on disability positive volunteer opportunities. Volunteers work in local independent living centers, gaining leadership development, job skills and connections!

Advocacy Campaigns: Many of our Volunteers and members of YO! work on youth-driven advocacy campaigns, such as Disability History and Taking Action for Accommodations. These campaigns are run BY and FOR youth!

Disability Mentoring
: YO! Volunteers often work with adults with disabilities during their volunteer time. Additionally, YO! participates in National Disability Mentoring Day every October. National Disability Mentoring Day has great opportunities to gain first-hand experience, on-site job shadowing and time with a mentor to ask questions, get answers and learn more about career opportunities!
