Youth & Parent Summit

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.

The 2021 Youth & Parent Summit will take place, but it is too early to determine whether it will be face-to-face or virtual. Event space is reserved the week of June 14th on the campus of James Madison University if a face-to-face event can safely be held. As soon as we have enough data to make a determination we will update this page, but do not anticipate being able to do this until early spring. We appreciate your patience as we await guidance from both James Madison University and the Virginia Department of Education.

In the meantime, if you are interested in what a face-to-face event is like, watch some of the videos below. And if you’re curious about our virtual events, you can still access the 2020 Virtual Summit here
