"I gained a sense of leadership and the impact one person has
or can have on a community."

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.

Meet a YO! Volunteer…
Hi! My name is Brian and I'm a transgender male; my pronouns are he/him. I heard about YO! when I attended the Youth Leadership Forum (YLF) in August of 2017. Since YLF my passion for advocating and bringing awareness to the disabled community has been a drive that motivates me. I'm a huge animal lover, especially dogs! I also dabble in both writing and photography. It's a pleasure to meet you!
