CT Kids As Self Advocates (CT KASA)

 

KASA is a national grassroots project created by youth for youth. CT KASA is open to youth and young adults ages 13 to 26, who are living with a disability or chronic health condition.

What CT KASA can do for YOU!

CT KASA participants learn how to advocate for themselves and take control over their own lives. CT KASA helps this happen by teaching young people about their rights and how to change the systems that affect their lives.

CT KASA activities will include:

  • Monthly meetings (available via face to face, webinar, or conference call)
  • Working on a personal development plan
  • Representing the voice of young people with disabilities at public events
  • Group youth leadership projects

 

 

Interested?

CT KASA meets monthly every 3rd Saturday of the month. Meetings are from 11:00am – 2:00pm

Meetings are held at UCONN UCEDD The Exchange Building #4
270 Farmington Avenue, Suite 181 Farmington, CT 06030

  1. Any groups in the Ridgefield, Danbury, Wilton area?

    • Hi Jeanne, No our group meets up in the Farmington area once a month. Do you have a youth that is interested? Please email at: nlubogo@pathct.org

      • I am a WHartford parent of a 22 year daughter who needs more friends in the area. Any suggestions? She is high functioning but college didn’t work out. She does have a PT job. I am hoping to possibly help her find a Roomate apartment situation.
