The Youth Leadership Forum (YLF) is an overnight conference for youth and young adults with disabilities held annually in Massachusetts and other states across the country. YLF participants build leadership skills and leave better prepared for future employment, higher education, and independent living.
Over the course of the three-day conference, YLF participants stay in the college dorms at Bridgewater State University to experience life in a college setting. They also participate in both small and large group discussions and workshops on such topics as: self-advocacy, disability pride, assistive technology, independent living, employment skills, career exploration, higher education, legislative advocacy, the Disability Rights Movement, and community participation.
