We also have a great, youth-friendly keynote and fun social activities planned for the Summit, including a dance party to cap off the festivities. There will be plenty of opportunities for attendees to network, and share their thoughts, experiences, and aspirations.

The FYC Celebrates Disability History and Awareness Weeks
October 1, marks the opening of Disability History and Awareness Weeks in Florida. Disability History and Awareness Weeks were created in Florida statute in 2008, thanks in large part to the tireless efforts of The Florida Youth Council. The legislation they worked to see enacted encourages school districts throughout the State of Florida to develop curriculum that highlights the many contributions that individuals with disabilities have made to our nation, our state, and our local communities. It also provides an occasion for Florida students to learn about the disability experience, and embrace the inclusion of their peers with disabilities.
To celebrate DHAW, The FYC has published a new edition of its newsletter, The Noodle . FYC members share their personal stories of inclusion and awareness, and highlight the importance of equality for people with disabilities. Members of the FYC are also participating in Opening and Closing Ceremonies and the DOE building in Tallahassee, and getting involved on local events around the state.
Over the next ten days, we will be sharing some facts, statistics and thoughts on the disability experience through our social media outlets on Twitter and Facebook. We encourage you to join us there! And if there’s a Disability History and Awareness activity going on in your community, we would love to hear about it.
Thanks very much for joining us in celebrating Disability History and Awareness!
