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 Mike Infante. I am 17 years old and currently a senior in high school living in Sacramento, CA. I have Cerebral Palsy, but that doesn't stop me. I enjoy acting in many theatre productions and in film. Some productions I've been in around town are "White Christmas," "Grease," "Miracle Worker" and Ghost Tours in Old Sacramento. I joined YO! to work and inspire younger generations of people with disabilities to make a change in the disabled community. I am very excited to work with my peers and make a bigger change in the community!
