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 learn advocacy and leadership skills from alumni and professionals with disabilities and create a “Personal Futures Plan” to help reach their future education, independent living, and career goals.
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.

Da Vinci Families,
I am excited to announce that Connect High will be hosting a Summer Gaming Opportunity for two weeks. During this program, students will have the opportunity to engage in gameplay, project design and collaboration. They will also have the chance to interact with AI-based mini games, allowing them to explore their visions of the future through their creative work. Students will have four hours a day over the course of 2 weeks (July 18- July 27), to build transformative experiences using emerging technology.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me Evelyn Hernandez, Career Connected Learning Coordinator, at email@example.com .
