Plan , success, support, trust … not words, but a call to action … not a slogan, a new way of life.
Every year more than 30 of the state’s top High School students with various disabilities gather on the campus of the University of Connecticut for the Connecticut Youth Leadership Forum. It is a mind expanding and physically demanding experience that like the 11 classes before them, will turn them into leaders in the disability community and the community in general.
This is my 11th year with the group. It was only supposed to be 1 year. But the people who actually run this camp are very persuasive. And the kids, are just amazing. Enjoy. Then go here to the Connecticut Youth Leadership Project to learn more.
BTW, October is National Disability Empowerment Awareness Month.
