2014 YLF Participants taken from the YLF website

pplications are now open for Ohio’s Youth Leadership Forum (YLF), a five day leadership training program for 11th and 12th grade high school students with disabilities sponsored by the Ohio Governor’s Council on People with Disabilities and OOD to be held in Columbus, Ohio. See below for more information on this fantastic opportunity for young adults.

At YLF, student delegates learn about choosing a career, the history of disability as a culture, available technology and resources, and self and systems advocacy. They are introduced to professionals with disabilities and have an opportunity to develop their own “Personal Leadership Plan” to reach goals in education, employment and the community.
