6.9. BACKBONES Youth Summer Program
The BACKBONES Youth Summer Program is for teenagers (ages 15-18) with spinal cord injuries and disease (SCI/D) to build self-advocacy skills and learn about topics important to youth with disabilities. Some topics include Going to College, Storytelling & Social Media, Employment, Recreation & Travel, Dating, and many more! This is a new virtual program in 2022 that meets weekly from June through August. It is a fun opportunity to connect with others with SCI/D and learn directly from leaders and professionals in the disability community. Applications for participation are due by April 30, 2022.
