The National Youth Leadership Network is excited to announce the dates
for a new hands-on training opportunity.  The training focuses on
creating your own support systems.  Support systems are teams of
people that help make your goals realities.  This event is created for
young people, parents, siblings, friends, allies, teachers, community
support providers, and more.
Reap What You Sow: Harvesting Support Systems is the title of the
training.  It will be held July 29 – 31, 2010 in Raleigh, North
Carolina.  SAVE THE DATES and REGISTER NOW!  For more information,

an Information Walk-About Session on Friday, July 30, 2010.  If you
are interested in hosting a table, please visit our web site and find

This training program is possible thanks to a grant.  This grant is
through the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS),
Administration on Developmental Disabilities (ADD).

youth-led organization.  We are a formal non-profit.  NYLN is made up
of young leaders with disabilities.  We live throughout the United
