Leading Change - Youth Leaders Group Members

Posted 2020-11-02

Leading Change is a project where persons with disabilities learn how to help make decisions about L'Arche.

Leading Change is a project where:

  • Persons with disabilities learn how to help make decisions about L'Arche.
  • L'Arche Canada learns how people with disabilities can help make decisions.

Activity 1:  We will form a Youth Leaders group

  • 2 young adults with disabilities from each region (under 30)
  • 1 Learning Support Assistant from each region


Here are the Trios from each region. Together, they are the Youth Leaders group.

Note: There were more youth (under 30) and assistants who applied in Ontario than the other regions. We decided to add a second Ontario Trio. They will be part of the whole project except large group sharing.
