Arizona Youth Leadership Forum (AZYLF) for Students and Transitioning Young Adults Who Have Disabilities is an innovative, 6-day conference, for students and young adults who have disabilities, as they prepare for and experience transition to adulthood. Designed to foster personal growth through self-discovery, AZYLF provides experiential learning opportunities to assist each individual as they identify and embrace their strengths and gifts, in conjunction with planning for their future.
This dynamic environment focuses on leadership development, career exploration, effective advocacy, and empowers through heightened awareness of disability history and culture. Although purposeful and relevant, the true value of AZYLF is not found in a workbook or in the words of an accomplished presenter, it is found in the climate of trust, mutual respect, and absolute acceptance, which allow youth to be themselves, to be heard, and to be changed.
AZYLF invests in our most precious resource, the youth
who will transform our tomorrows.
