Hello, Im Kathleen and I am passionate about what I do and what I believe in. I am always working towards my goals and trying to improve my everyday skills. During my volunteer time, I am hoping to practice typing, answering phones, and helping those in need. I am willing to learn new things and hope to find ways to accomplish things in a more orderly fashion and a timelier manner.

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!

Hello all! My name is Travis Nichols. I am a 19-year-old blind individual from California. From the age of 10 to the age of 18 I attended the California School for the Blind located in Fremont, California. While there, I gained extensive experience working with youth and adults alike that had multiple disabilities. I have, and always will, enjoy helping and serving the disabled community to the best of my abilities. I am a simple man, but I am me. It is a pleasure to meet you all.

My name is Jose, I'm from Fresno, CA. I'm a youth in the Bridges Program at Resources for Independent Living Central Valley (RICV). I look forward to volunteering with the YO! Disabled and Proud program. What I'm interested in is meeting new people and working well with the other youth. I like to help people and have conversations with others to learn more about them. One day I know I'll be a great leader with YO! Disabled & Proud.
