Youth Leadership Network

Through the support of Mass Rehab Commission, the YLN promotes self-advocacy and self-awareness for teens and young adults with disabilities ages 16 to 21 with opportunities for youth 14 to 26. This is a state-wide initiative with meetings and events held in Boston, Springfield, Worcester, and East Bridgewater. This is an opportunity for youth to make friends in their local communities and within the larger Network group.

All groups and events feature fun, hands-on activities and interactive discussions about communication, teamwork, community service, disability rights, career interests and employment skills.

Pizza and refreshments will be served. New and returning members are always welcome to bring a friend. Parents/guardians are also encouraged to stay and hear from dynamic speakers throughout the year. 

We hope to see you there!
