California Youth Leadership Forum (YLF)

Youth Leadership Forum for Students with Disabilities

YLF is an annual five day leadership program that provides information and resources about employment, education, independence and assistive technology. In addition, students have the opportunity to interact with students their own age and staff with various disabilities to develop long lasting friendships.

YLF is held in Sacramento. Students will get to stay in the dorms on campus at California State University, Sacramento.
