Equip Leadership Group

Equip Logo

We see you. The real you. The one behind what others see as your disability.

At Equip, we understand what it means to do life just a little differently. That’s because we’ve been there. As young adults with disabilities ourselves, we’ll help you take the lead in your life and find your voice.

Equip is a peer-to-peer young adult leadership group focused on empowerment, support, and camaraderie for youth ages 13-28 with disabilities. Our young adult leaders guide youth with every type of disability in finding their a-ha moment—when they take charge of their lives, find their unique voice to self-advocate, and engage with their community of peers more fully.

We get together regularly through:

  • Monthly in-person and online hangouts
  • Week-long summer leadership series
  • One-on-one peer mentoring
