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…

Hi! My name is Brian and I'm a transgender male; my pronouns are he/him. I heard about YO! when I attended the Youth Leadership Forum (YLF) in August of 2017. Since YLF my passion for advocating and bringing awareness to the disabled community has been a drive that motivates me. I'm a huge animal lover, especially dogs! I also dabble in both writing and photography. It's a pleasure to meet you!
