The key to YLF is leadership by example.
The YLF experience is only possible with great staff! We pride ourselves on bringing the highest quality staff members, YLF alumni, and speakers to YLF. Our staff members have experience in teaching self-advocacy and life skills, classroom management and supervisory skills, as well as many have traveled the same path as our delegates, sharing personal experiences living with a disability. Our staff, alumni mentors, and speakers all share a desire to make a positive impact on others.
Our alumni are past students of the YLF who strive to give students the same, if not better, opportunity than they had.
"Seeing the delegates succeed in the problem solving games was really cool. I definitely experienced a lot of the emotions that I saw from them." - Curran McGuire, YLF 2016.
