Youth Without Limits

 

The Youth Without Limits Support Group is a new program at CPABC. The group is for (but not limited to) youth and young adults between the ages of 13-29.

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.

 

Youth group participants listen to presenter Peter Brown on May 26, 2017

The group sessions will take place between April and June 2017. 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.

This is a free inclusive program. Drop-ins welcome! Snacks and refreshments provided. Please contact Carrie at supportworker@bccerebralpalsy.com a week before the group if a sign language interpreter is needed.

The Life Without Limits Youth Support Group has given me a sense of security and community. It is hard to find people that are willing to talk about these sensitive yet really important topics without feeling judged or misunderstood. I strongly believe that these kinds of support groups are essential not only for a better overall well-being, but it also allows important voices to be heard that are all too often silenced. – support group participant
