2019 PEATC Parent and Youth Empowerment Summit

Location: The Great Wolf Lodge, Williamsburg, Virginia

Time: 7:30am - 4:30pm

Description: PEATC is pleased to announce its 5th annual Parent and Youth Empowerment (PYE) Summit which will be held on Saturday, September 14, 2019 at the Great Wolf Lodge in Williamsburg, Virginia. 

PEATC views this Summit as an opportunity to provide youth with disabilities (ages 12-22) and their parents the opportunity to gather valuable information from presentations and exhibitors, to network and to connect with other families. Youth and parents should leave the PYE Summit feeling empowered by the experience.

The goals of the Summit are to increase parents' capacity to help their children with disabilities improve their secondary school learning and post-secondary outcomes and to increase the capacity of youth to be effective self-advocates. The Summit will consist of break-out sessions with concurrent Parent and Self-Advocate (ages 12-22) tracks.
