Support group for youth and young adults
The Youth Without Limits Support Group is a new program at CPABC. The group is for youth and young adults the ages 13 and up.
The Youth Without Limits Support Group is unique in the sense that it is a support group facilitated by disabled youth specifically for their peers with disabilities. We understand that acceptance and understanding are key aspects to providing adequate knowledge and support from one disabled person to another.
Each session will begin with a brief presentation that will engage participants and open up discussion. Some weeks will feature guest speakers who specialize in various topics. Our goal is to provide a safe and welcoming space for disabled people to socialize, learn from, and support one another.
