Why is Youth Advocacy important?
Here’s what our members say…
Ella Hanley: I think youth advocacy is important because, youth advocacy is a way for young adults with disabilities to learn how to be a leader in their communities and it teaches them how to advocate for the things that are important to them.
Kellyn Donahoe: Youth advocacy is important because people with disabilities have worldwide issues that are important/passionate to them. We want our voices to be heard and we want to make a difference. So, we can research issues about the worldwide issues that people with disabilities have.
