Youth Advocacy

Youth Volunteers:

Youth ages 14-17 are needed to help with advocacy efforts and small office projects. Learn how to write letters to your government officials to help promote change in the Disability Community. By volunteering, young people can gain valuable experiences such as development of teamwork skills and exposure to individuals with disabilities in a work environment.

NAIDW is committed to getting our children involved and believe that it is vital that we teach them early on about people with disabilities.

Are You a Teen Worker?

You’re earning your own money. You’re making new friends. You’re learning new things and becoming independent. Work can be a fun, rewarding, and an exciting part of your life. But did you know that your job could harm you?

Every 9 minutes, a U.S. teen gets hurt on the job. These teens are young people like Emily, who was working alone at a sandwich shop when a robber with a gun attacked her. And they’re like Joe, a construction helper who was electrocuted on his job.

This guide gives you the facts you need to stay safe and healthy at work. It also shows you what jobs you can (and can’t do), and it teaches you about your rights and responsibilities as a young worker.

Meet Terry Anderson, a proud mother of three and Ticket to Work Program participant. After losing her job and being diagnosed with cancer, Terry went on Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and took an extended period of time away from work.
