Featured Alumni "Since my time at YO! has ended, I have graduated from San Francisco State with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and have obtained a job with the Federal government." -Sara Moussavian, 2012 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.

Meet a YO! Volunteer…

Hello. My name is Justin. I have lived in Fresno the past 2 years. I originally lived in New York for 14 years, then North Carolina for two years. Since I have lived in three different states, I have had the opportunity to visit several famous places, such as Niagara Falls, Disney, and Mount Rushmore, as well as the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. I enjoy gaming, sports and working with computers. I like to play Pokemon on the weekends. One of my goals is to take college classes to help me obtain a job in the computer and/or electronics field. I have autism and enjoy helping others, which is one of the reasons I am excited to be a part of YO.
