I’m Determined Youth Summit 2021

June 14 - June 17

The Youth and Parent Summit is a three-day event held each June and sponsored by the Virginia Department of Education and the Partnership for People with Disabilities. Youth with disabilities from across the Commonwealth meet to network and discuss issues of importance to youth and young adults with disabilities. There is no cost for youth and parents to attend this event.

This year, due to safety concerns connected to COVID-19, the event will again be online. This Virtual Summit will follow a similar feel to the face-to-face events in that it will include a welcome from VDOE representatives, sessions for youth which were prepared with the help from our state youth leaders, sessions for parents, a keynote address, an assistive technology lab, and exhibitor information focusing on Virginia resources for youth with disabilities.

The Virtual Summit is scheduled for June 14-17, 2021. The Summit will focus on the quadrants of our One-Pager: Strengths, Preferences, Interests, and Needs (SPIN) as a way to continue to learn about self-awareness, the choices we make, and how we can continue to set ourselves up for success in a world that looks much different than it did a year ago.
