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.

Meet a YO! Volunteer…

Hello, my name is Nathan Kaufmann, and I am 27 years old. I am currently a volunteer for the Silicon Valley Independent Living Center. I have a passion for all things tech, especially computers and video games. I also enjoy all things sci-fi, fantasy, and fan fic in shows and in books. Through YO!, I hope to gain more skills and learn more about my community.
