Joyce Bender is proud to host a workshop as a part of The Youth Leadership Forum (YLF) in Massachusetts. The MA YLF is an annual conference for youth with disabilities interested in building leadership skills and preparing for future employment, higher education, and independent living. Over the course of the multi-day conference, YLF participants engage in both small and large group discussions and workshops on topics such as: self-advocacy, disability pride, assistive technology, independent living, employment skills, career exploration, higher education, legislative advocacy, the disability rights movement, and community participation.
Joyce will present on the topic, “Embracing Our Legacy and Remaining Ever Vigilant Takeaway,” on June 25th at 1 PM ET. During the workshop she will discuss leadership styles of disability civil rights pioneers, milestones won, and how to make a difference in the current environment.
