It’s easy! We are looking for a few great leaders … and that means you!!!
Call the Coordinator of Youth Leadership at 585-442-6470, or email her, to set up an appointment!
We will start with an intake (some paperwork) at RCIL, and you will work with the Coordinator of Youth Leadership to establish some goals. If your goal is to socialize with the YO! group … great! Other goals? Apply for scholarships? Connect with community resources? Learn to ride the bus? We’ve got you covered. Once you are signed on, you are an official member of YO!
YO! meets each month … sometimes we hang out, have informal discussion groups and social opportunities (including Wii/PS3 games and snacks) … while other meetings are activity-centered! We offer classes and outings that fortify your knowledge of disability rights, culture, and pride (see our article on our D3 Classes). Check out our upcoming events page for what’s on the schedule!
You’ll find a welcoming group of teens and young people, who help each other out, and are active in the community in ways “that matter!” Have you see our movie? No?? Check it out by clicking here.
If you will need assistance with transportation, email or give the Coordinator of Youth Leadership a call at (585) 442-6470 to see what we can work out! If you need an interpreter, or other reasonable accommodations at an upcoming meeting, just let us know!
So join us at YO!! We meet either at the Regional Center for Independent Living (RCIL) at 497 State Street Rochester, NY 14608 … or at other locations within the Rochester Community! A great place to meet new people! Check us out on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or YouTube!
