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 Emily, I'm nineteen years old and I'm in my first year of college. I'm eager to start a career in social services or disability advocacy once I complete my Bachelor's Degree in Human Services. This is my first year with the YO! organization and I'm excited to get started. Some of my hobbies include going to concerts and reading in my spare time.
