PROGRAMS

Making A Difference

YOUTH LEADERSHIP FORUM (YLF)

Growing Youth Into Leaders

The NCYLF is an annual multi-day program that fosters emerging youth and young adult leaders by teaching them how to advocate in their communities and for themselves. Delegates come from all across North Carolina to learn about the Disability Rights Movement and how certain civil rights laws, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act, came to fruition. The NCYLF builds young leaders while enabling them to experience independence and find their voice as advocates.

PEER TO PEER MENTORING

Supporting Youth

At Youth LEAD NC, we are dedicated to providing ongoing support to youth to help them continue to grow as leaders and self advocates.  Since 2018, we’ve been supporting our youth with disabilities in a variety of ways and measuring our success not by monetary size, but by more qualitative measurements such as the scale and effectiveness of our programs.

Independent Living is not doing things by yourself. It is being in control of how things are done.
