What is the YLF?
What is YLF?
Our Speakers address topics such as disability rights laws, innovations in technology, community resources, legislative processes, and much more! Delegates meet state and national leaders and will spend time at the state capitol meeting government officials.
It is critical students with disabilities identify themselves with pride, as individuals and as members of their community. YLF offers students with common experiences the opportunity to learn from each other in a framework of history and an atmosphere of encouragement.
How Are YLF delegates selected?
Delegates selected are representative of Oklahoma in terms of geography, gender, economic status, ethnicity, and types of disabilities.
Is There a Cost for Delegates to Attend?
All costs are paid by the Developmental Disabilities Council of Oklahoma. Transportation costs can be reimbursed if needed.
The Oklahoma Youth Leadership Forum enables youth with disabilities to grow personally, socially and academically, and to fulfill their potential in their work and lives. No student should be denied this opportunity.
