Gathering of Youth (GOY) is a hands-on conference planned by, and for, youth with disabilities. It is a program open to high school-aged youth to advance their independent thinking, decision making, and self-advocacy skills as they transition into independent life after high school. It’s about transition as well as setting, striving and reaching goals, in a fun, safe environment!
Who Can Attend?
**High school aged youth with disabilities** Youth who want to have fun, have a goal (s), should have a goal (s), and are starting to think about their future. Registration is limited to 22 youth on a first come, first served basis. Priority will be given to first time GOY participants.
Youth needing one-to-one personal care or other assistance to participate must bring their own attendant (No parents please, but a sibling is good!). If you need ideas on how to find someone, contact John Shaw or Bob Barbian (see number below).
How Do I Register for GOY?
