The prospective youth delegates are selected through a statewide competition and have demonstrated leadership potential.  Qualified students can apply now for the eighth annual Missouri Youth Leadership Forum (MYLF) scheduled for July 25-28, 2010 at the University of Missouri in Columbia.

Many MYLF alumni and staff will return to serve as mentors and team members of the 2010 youth delegates by sharing their knowledge about leadership principles, disability experience and resource sharing, assistive technology, development and achievement of career goals, independent living and developing advocacy skills.  This framework provides an atmosphere of encouragement, helping youth realize their ability and pursuing a successful transition from high school to college, employment and becoming contributing members of their communities.
