The 2022 Delegate Application is now available.

ABOUT THE YLF PROGRAM

The 2022 Youth Leadership Forum for Students with Disabilities (YLF) is a week-long program that is tentatively scheduled for July 19 – July 22, 2022, for Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors in High School. The 2022 YLF includes virtual post-YLF sessions that will be held in the months after the week-long event. The YLF will be held virtually using the Zoom platform.

During the week-long event, eight to ten delegates work in small groups, supported by two co-counselors, one peer counselor and group assistants. Delegates work from the YLF program workbook activities that reinforce the key leadership goals and objectives of the program. Each day has a theme and activities reinforce that theme.

In addition to small group sessions, delegates participate in large group sessions which feature presentations and discussions from young adults with disabilities who have found success in their chosen careers. Delegates also have fun activities such as: a talent show, a comedy act that presents inspiring achievements for people with disabilities, and a dance, which offers delegates the opportunity to socialize with fellow delegates and learn public speaking skills and interaction in a fun atmosphere.
