Then we hear about the California Youth Leadership Forum for students with disabilities. Now in its 31st year, the forum teaches high school students about disability history, advocacy, and culture. We talk to Catherine Campisi, who helped develop the program, about its impact.
Finally we touch base with Curran Brown, the camp director at EmpowHer. Founded in 2021, this year-long leadership program for young women aged 13-18 includes a week-long camping trip in New York. We’ll be talking more to Curran sometime soon.
Grab a cool drink and some ice cream — and enjoy.
