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…

Hi, my name is Matthew Henderson. I was born and raised in Sacramento. I still live in Sacramento. I graduated from Sacramento City College with my Business certificate. My favorite hobbies are bike riding, running, watching movies, playing video games and hanging out with my friends. I have a history of volunteering for a variety of disability specific organizations. I started volunteering for YO! because I like helping to support young people with disabilities to have their independence and know there rights. I am looking forward to working with YO!
