Youth Leadership Forum

Are You a High School Junior or Senior with a Disability Interested in Self-Advocacy & Leadership Development?

Ohio Youth Leadership Forum (YLF) is a week-long career leadership training program, held during the summer, for 11th and 12th grade high school students with disabilities.

The Ohio Statewide Independent Living Council is pleased to announce that we have again contracted with Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) in hosting the Youth Leadership Forums (YLF).  Together with the local Centers for Independent Living (CILs), we will be offering 5 Regional Youth Leadership Forums and 1 Statewide Virtual Youth Leadership Forum this summer for High School juniors and seniors interested in leadership and advocacy. 

Students will need to complete a YLF application and be eligible for OOD services to participate in this program.
