TSLP Statewide Events

TSLP provides regionally based events and activities for high school students with disabilities, their parents, educators and adult agencies.  These transition events and activities provide education and information for students to make a seamless transition from high school to the adult world of employment, education or training, and independent living.

The Youth Leadership Forum enables young adults who have a disability to learn from each other and from successful adults with disabilities who are recognize leaders and role models. Students learn more about their own disability and others’ disabilities, how to analyze their own strengths and weaknesses, enhanced organizational skills, different leadership styles, about the legislative process and disability laws,  how to influence others, etiquette, and much more!
