Event Details

During Rep. Miller's 6th Annual Disability & Mental Health Summit, PYI will be offering a session called Influence to Action: Advocacy, Leadership and Transition targeted for up to 100 transition age students (16-21) who will be attending the event. Schools will have 2 different days to choose from - either Wednesday, March 13th or Friday, March 15th.  The program will repeat on both days. 

Influence to Action is a one-day event that brings students together with the purpose of developing their self-advocacy skills.  Activities and topics at the event will include:

  • Workshops to develop skills to become a leader of tomorrow

  • How to navigate disability support services through self-advocacy

  • How to interact with elected officials during a Legislative Panel

  • How to network with potential employers at an Employment Fair

Our free Summit is a one-of-a-kind event in western Pennsylvania that last year brought in over 1,000 people, 160 participating organizations, and offered over 25 hours of free sessions on a variety of disability and mental health topics. We also offer many hours of continuing education credits for teachers, lawyers, and social workers. 

PYI is a youth driven program run by Pennsylvania Youth Initiative that works to empower young people with disabilities to develop the skills and resources necessary to become leaders of the future- now. Their goal is to promote leadership, advocacy and independence, by offering youth the opportunity to identify their own interests and needs, plan events, and be able to operate the organization in the future.  For more information call 412-255-7227.
