Dare to Dream High School Student Leadership Conference May 16, 2018
The New Jersey Department of Education's Office of Special Education Professional Development is sponsoring nine regional Dare to Dream Student Leadership conferences that highlight strategies and information to prepare high school students with disabilities for college and career readiness. Each conference features keynote presentations from accomplished students and young adults with disabilities who have demonstrated exemplary self-advocacy and leadership skills. Additionally, the conference program includes a variety of concurrent workshop sessions that provide conference attendees opportunities to gain insight into the transition from school to adult life process. The conference gives students the opportunity to participate in workshops led by their peers on topics such as: self-discovery, student self-advocacy, learning styles, developing career paths and understanding rights and responsibilities in college. Dare to Dream has long been a positive and empowering experience for thousands of New Jersey's students.
