About 360Youth

360Youth provides high school students and young adults with support and real-world skills they need to navigate the transition to adult life. Sessions are led by peers who have successfully made the transition from school to independent living, employment, education and job training, and adult roles. The Fall Session of 360Youth will run November 7 – December 19, 2020.

“I believe that mentoring could help people have experiences that will let them know that they’re not alone and they have people to go to.” Ruth L, 360Youth Facilitator 

“Being able to go to a workshop and see that your teacher or facilitator is somebody that’s close to your age or just a little older, or maybe even just a little younger, is really amazing, That’s inspiring.” Audra P, 360Youth Facilitator 

“We use a person-centered planning approach because, as people who have disabilities, it’s very common for us to be labeled just with our disability. It’s very important to know who we are as a person and who we are first before anything else.” Anya C 

“Learning about disability history was very eye-opening because, most of the time, schools don’t actually teach that.” Mateo T
