Description

10TH ANNUAL VOICES OF CHANGE CONFERENCE:

SECONDARY TRANSITION FOR DC YOUTH BY DC YOUTH


Join the DC Youth Leadership Network as we work collaboratively to equip transition age youth with disabilities with the knowledge and skills to lead self-determined lives through opportunities to LEARN, LEAD, and ACT.

The focus of the 10th Annual Voices of Change Conference is careers in the arts, event planning, and youth leadership!



REGISTRATION IS CURRENTLY OPEN FOR:

1. DC Schools serving students with disabilities ages 14-22

District of Columbia schools (DCPS, Charter, and Non-public) are invited to bring their students with disabilities, ages 14-22, to experience opportunities to learn, lead, and act through interactive performances, workshops, and activities. This year's conference will feature professional and youth artists, event planners, and youth leaders, and highlight a variety of careers in these industries! PLEASE NOTE: Lunch IS provided.

2. Parents / Families / Caregivers of DC students with disabilities

The Parent/Family/Caregiver Program is from 9:30am-2:30pm! Learn how to help prepare your student to successfully transition from high school into employment, education, and independence. During the program, you will have the opportunity to learn about organizations that support youth in the transition process and ask questions about transition. PLEASE NOTE: Lunch IS provided. Transportation & Childcare are NOT provided.

3. Exhibitors

SchoolTalk is recruiting organizations that support transition age students with disabilities to host a table in the event’s exhibit hall. We anticipate that hundreds of DC school educators and students with disabilities will attend. Please join us and take advantage of this great networking opportunity! Space is VERY limited! If your organization would like to be listed in the program as an exhibitor, you must register no later than February 15.
