Featured Alumni "I would describe YO! as a community of young thought leaders who are the next generation of positive action. It's a safe space where you can learn from others and feel proud of who you are in all your identities." -Rosie Mcdonnell-Horita, 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.

Meet a YO! Volunteer…

My name is Jessica, I am 23. I have epilepsy. I recently graduated from California State University, Long Beach with a dual major in Sociology and Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies. It was not easy but hope was never lost. I am excited to be a part of YO! Volunteer Corps and I'm looking forward to working on the #ADA25th and Disability History Week campaigns. I like challenges and I can't wait to meet other YO! members. I have many new ideas and can't wait to work together. I bring optimism to this space.
