13th Annual I’m Determined Youth and Parent Summit


The Virginia Department of Education’s I’m Determined project, in conjunction with the Partnership for People with Disabilities, invites applications for sponsorship to the 13th Annual I’m Determined Youth and Parent Summit at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

Youth with disabilities from across the Commonwealth will meet to identify ways to become better advocates and lead more self-determined lives. The selected individuals and a parent/guardian will receive paid registration, dormitory accommodations, travel expenses and meals for the three-day event. A concurrent Parent Summit for the selected participant’s parent/guardian will be held at the university. Parent attendance is based on their child applying and being accepted to the summit. Parents do not complete an application.

The Youth and Parent Summit will start on Wednesday, June 12, 2019, and will end on Friday, June 14, 2019. More detailed information regarding the Youth and Parent Summit will be provided upon acceptance of the youth.
