This is open to Howard County residents between theages of 13 and 18 with any kind of disability (physical, cognitive,psychiatric, etc.) Those youth who complete the curriculum will be given aChromebook (valued at $250) so they can stay in touch with each other and ourorganization as well as access other services and supports.
