You have been asked to provide a recommendation for a youth or young adult that is applying for the Massachusetts Youth Leadership Forum (YLF) for youth with disabilities.

YLF is an overnight conference for youth and young adults with disabilities who have demonstrated leadership potential and concern for their communities. YLF participants stay in dorms at Bridgewater State University to experience life away from home in a college setting, and have the opportunity to build their leadership skills as they learn about self-advocacy, assistive technology, independent living, employment skills, career exploration, higher education, legislative advocacy, the Disability Rights Movement, and community participation. Partners for Youth with Disabilities (www.pyd.org) is proud to organize and host the 2019 Massachusetts YLF in partnership with numerous collaborators across the state.
