The Power of Youth Voices: A Roundtable Discussion with YASA (Youth as Self Advocates)

Session F40-FV

During this roundtable discussion, a panel of YASA members will share their passions and successes around issues like creating a youth board, managing health care, the impact of Covid-19, telehealth, ableism, finding their voice, relationships, disability rights, school, employment, and transportation. It will also be an opportunity for the audience to participate in a robust conversation with YASA about any topic relating to youth.
