Youth Information Documents

NYLN recognizes that often times, the biggest barrier for youth with disabilities is the lack of information we receive on issues that are important for our lives. To help resolve this, we created eight different documents on navigating housing, education, dating, employment, recreation, transportation, voting, and ways to facilitate using popular education.

Each of the documents are about 6-10 pages. They each come with a powerpoint so young people can use them in a training. Everything is also available in Spanish. All documents are in PDFs but are screenreader accessible.
