Empowerment Weekend (February 16 & 17)

by Mary Mazzoni on January 12, 2013

Do you know a youth (age 14-21) with a disability who lives in Pennsylvania?

Here’s a rare opportunity!

The “Empowering Youth Voices” event will engage youth in dynamic sessions with young adult leaders. Youth will clarify their personal goals, claim their talents and dreams, and develop life-changing relationships.

This weekend will lead to further opportunities for empowerment, leadership, friendships, and career networking.

Parents and mentors will participate in empowering sessions of their own.

The event is sponsored by Pennsylvania Youth Leadership Network (PYLN), Abilities in Motion (AIM), and the Statewide Youth Initiative (SYI), with funding and support from the PA Department of Education (PaTTAN), the PA Department of Labor (OVR), and the PA Statewide Independent Living Council (PASILC).

The event is free.

Some meals are provided. Other incidental costs (transportation, lodging) are the responsibility of participants, although help for these costs may be available to some youth from local mini-grants.

Register by February 1, 2013.

If you know youth in Pennsylvania – Spread the Word!

I know it’s kinda late in the game for this specific event, but I really think that PYLN should be listed in the survival guide section of Cerebral Palsy Family Network. You can go to the site and list yourselves. It’s a well-used resource. Good luck with this event. It sounds awesome.

Nick, Thanks for inviting us to join the survival guide at Cerebral Palsy Family Network. I’ll be sure to follow up, and will invite PYLN to do the same. All the best to you and everyone at Cerebral Palsy Family Network!
