Planned Lifetime Advocacy Network Info Session for Youth
The BCCPD has received the following notice from the Planned Lifetime Advocacy Network (PLAN):
Join us to discuss what’s important in your transition after high school and how to get involved in leading others through the same transition.
Finishing high school usually marks the end of one stage of your life and the beginning of another. Please join us for an interesting evening where you can let us know what’s important to you as you plan what you will do after you graduate high school!
We will be holding an info session to learn more from young people about what would be most helpful to them as they face life after graduation. Using your feedback, we’re going to improve our workshop that guides youth with a disability through this transition process.
We’re also looking for youth leaders who are interested in continuing to help guide us in our work. This will help us to develop useful and accessible information that will assist young people with disabilities, their families, and support networks make good choices.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Youth from 16-29
If you have already finished school, or will soon be facing graduation, we are interested in hearing from you about your experiences, ideas, hopes and fears.
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?
We want to make sure that our resources include a youth perspective and are developed by youth, for youth!
