"I would join YO! again because I was close
minded about disability issues and I learned a
lot throughout my volunteering at YO!"
-Damary Celita Bustos Beltran, 2013 Alumni
Youth receive first-hand experience working in an office setting and often work on youth-driven advocacy campaigns, such as the Disability History Week Campaign and Taking Action for Accommodations. The YO! Volunteer Corps create connections for youth with adults with disabilities, as well as other youth volunteers. YO! Volunteer Corps members earn a stipend every month.

Hi I'm Mohamed and I am 21 years old. I live in Stanislaus county Modesto area and have worked at Disability Resource Agency for Independent Living (DRAIL) for a year helping out around the office while also helping people find services. I chose to be on the Youth Advisory Council because it seems fun and I'll get to learn more about our history as a community.
