“Youth Excelling in Leading & Learning”
The Statewide Parent Advocacy Network (SPAN) is actively recruiting youth and young adults, with and without disabilities and/or special healthcare needs, ages 16 – 24, for our advisory council the NJ YELL.
NJ YELL provides the opportunity for training in advocacy, participation in regional meetings, teleconferences, webinars and events that are dedicated to improving transition to adult life.
NJ YELL members receive stipends for participation in face to face meetings.
SPAN's goal is to promote the voice of youth, build advocacy skills and increase participation in leadership roles to improve the systems that impact their lives in education, healthcare, and independent living.
