Workshop A 

Including ALL Youth: Ensuring Full Inclusion of Youth with Disabilities in Your Programs

Learn what it takes to develop and maintain an inclusive culture that engages youth with disabilities. Gain ideas for accommodations, partnerships, and even funding streams for inclusive programming.

Workshop B

Developing Democratic Citizens in Communities

This workshop describes how 10 communities from across the country used public forums to engage young adults in their communities. Two of the communities (Birmingham, AL and Oakland, CA) will share their experiences of how young adults lead deliberative forums, addressed important social issues like education, and gained civic and leadership skills that will benefit them throughout their adult life.
