The Next Generation: Register for the Youth Empowerment Luncheon

Feb 8, 2023 |

YEP Youth Empowerment Luncheon - March 10-11, 2023

Living with limb loss can be a challenging experience, but you don’t have to face it alone. The Amputee Coalition Youth Engagement Program (YEP) is working to empower the next generation of leaders and advocates in the limb loss community.

YEP offers youth the opportunity to connect with peers who also live this experience. YEP provides a supportive and inclusive environment for youth ages 10-17. By participating in YEP activities, the next generation can make a real difference with their peers and help to shape the future of the limb loss community.

The Youth Engagement Program offers young people a fun and engaging way to learn and grow. Whether you’re interested in meeting new people, learning valuable life and advocacy skills, or simply having a great time, this program offers you the perfect opportunity to get involved.

Our next in-person event is kicking off next month in Chicago. Join us!
