Featured Alumni "YO! is a great place where you will meet people close to your age who have disabilities… YO! is about teamwork, but there will be chances for working independently to boost confidence." - Valerie Booth, 2010 Alumni

YO! YAC - Youth Advisory Council
Congratulations to the new
YO! YAC members!

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.
