Southern California’s Annual Youth Leadership Summit for High School Students with Disabilities
The Youth Leadership Summit is a five-day leadership program from July 16-21 for students with disabilities, held at Cal Poly Pomona University.

Attendees will interact with leaders with disabilities, which may include celebrities, politicians, entertainers, and other adult role models with disabilities. Participants also make lifelong friendships with other Southern California attendees and have mentorship opportunities with alumni.
There is no COST for the students to attend. They must fill out an application to be considered.
