YouthACT Team Profiles Highlight Youth Leadership & Advocacy

NCWD/Youth has published profiles of the Youth Action Council on Transition (YouthACT) teams. YouthACT is a national initiative to get more youth with disabilities and their allies involved as leaders who partner with adults and organizations to improve opportunities for youth to succeed in life. The profiles feature seven of the teams who were competitively selected to participate since the initiative began in 2013. Each team tells their story of how they have worked together to promote youth voice, advocate for issues important to them, and bring about positive change in their communities.
