Dear McKay Scholarship Schools,

The Able Trust sponsors the Youth Leadership Forum for High School students with disabilities (15 years old - 18 years old). This is an ALL EXPENSE PAID weekend in July to Tallahassee for students to develop leadership and self-advocacy skills. I have been involved with it since the beginning and can tell you it is a life changing weekend for students. THE DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO MARCH 1ST.

They have created a great slideshow of the program from last year. Spend a minute watching and seeing how kids with all disabilities work together to become tomorrow's leaders.

If you have high school students, please read the information below and go to to find out more about the Youth Leadership Forum.
