Youth Leadership Forum 2013 - Student Application
Student Application for the 15th Annual Youth Leadership Forum for Students with Disabilities (YLF) scheduled for July 22-July 25, 2013 at the University of Connecticut, Storrs campus is now available.
The YLF program will bring together forty high school students with disabilities from throughout Connecticut for a four-day training forum focusing on enhancing community leadership skills. The forum will provide a concentrated educational and motivational experience for the students selected through a formal, competitive process.
The delegates will explore personal leadership skills, define career goals and leave the forum with a very specific action plan that describes what they will do back in their local communities to enhance the lives of people with disabilities. Students who are accepted to YLF will be required to attend follow-up sessions after the forum to implement their Community Action Plans.
