The conference focuses on career and college readiness and lifting up our youth, young adults, and community members who experience a disability. All of us need a circle of support. The Tools 4 Success Conference brings together the community to share their wisdom, insights, volunteer and paid work experience, college aspirations, resources, and more!
Jack and Ben were both youth that helped organize and attend the outreach events/workshops that were funded. After the workshops, Jack says that he more confident about his future. Ben said that the most important tool he has practiced is the ability to advocate for himself and to ask for help when it is needed.
Lola had been taking care of her mother, who was also an elder in her tribe, for 2 years. She had not had a break and was becoming fatigued. She was approved and given a $1,000 voucher for respite care. Lola was able to use the voucher over 3 months and was able to run errands, have a little R&R, and see her spouse's family more than she had in the past two years.
You are making our community more inclusive and equitable by supporting and empowering families and individuals with disabilities.

From the very first time I walked into the PAVE office, something changed. For the first time, I felt at an advantage because I had a child with a disability. I learned to be a better parent, to my daughter with a disability and to my other children. I learned to walk with my head held a little higher; to be proud of her and who she is and above all to be strong in my ability to advocate for her.
