The KASA (Kids As Self-Advocates) program models leadership and the power of self-advocacy. KASA active in our schools, communities, families and places of employment, and PATH is very exciting to be bringing KASA back to Connecticut. We share our message with other youth who have disabilities or chronic health conditions, as well as with our friends and peers.

Our activities will include:

  • Representing the voice of youth living with disabilities and chronic health conditions by speaking to policy makers at public events and hearings
  • Educating our communities, including students, teachers and administrators at our schools; medical students and physicians; and federally funded cafe and agencies and state programs
  • Serving as advisors to the over 40,000 members of Family Voices across the country and organizations and agencies interested in promoting youth involvement and leadership
