Background

In October 2014, GMSA hosted our 1st annual Youth Summit. This was a one-day self-advocacy conference just for high school students. The goal was to introduce students to self-advocacy and to teach ways to get involved in self-advocacy. Students worked together in small group and large group activities to learn new ideas and to connect with their peers from around the region. More than 30 students from 6 different high schools attended the 2014 Summit.
