The website for YO! – Youth Own was established in the summer of 2014 by five students enrolled in our RochesterWorks! Summer Youth Employment Program. These students were fortunate enough to have been involved with the independent living movement through RCIL’s youth leadership program, and were able to continue and perfect their community organizing skills through actual hands-on work experience with the group. They learned about web design and development, and www.rcilyo.org is a comprehensive tool they worked on, to bring young people with disabilities together, and to disseminate information.
