Summer Leadership Training for Students with Disabilities
Apply Now
for YLF!


Once a year, rising high school juniors and seniors can apply to become a delegate for the Youth Leadership Forum (YLF). Although applications are due by APRIL 15. 
the YLF occurs in the summer--this year it will be held July 28-Aug.1 at Virginia Commonwealth University.

 

If you know of a student with a disability who is motivated, and wants to learn not only leadership skills but also is interested in advocacy, history, and improving the lives of people with disabilities, share the link to the video on You Tube at http://bit.ly/14YLFva1 and the application, which can be downloaded at www.VaBoard.org   

 

Twenty-five students from across Virginia will be chosen to attend. The application, which requires two letters of reference and a signature page, is due no later than March 31, so students should begin the process right away. All expenses of the YLF are paid by the Virginia Board for People with Disabilities, so spread the word!
