The Disability Justice Mentoring Collective is seeking both mentors and mentees!
DJMC provides a unique opportunity for youth with disabilities, ages 12 to 24, to receive guidance and support from a mentor who cares about disability justice. Disability justice goes beyond disability rights – ensuring full inclusion and access to society – and is about furthering the power of people with disabilities.

Access Living’s Youth programs welcome adults with a disability or disability knowledge to connect with a youth mentee with a disability. Join us to help youth develop self-advocacy skills, build confidence, and meet other members of the local disability community. Participants meet with a mentee twice a month for two hours, once in the community and once as a group at Access Living.
For Mentees (young people with disabilities, ages 12 to 24)
Get paired with an adult mentor who will help you develop self-advocacy skills and build confidence! You’ll also meet and connect with other members of the disability community. Participants meet with their mentor twice a month and we hold a monthly group gathering for mentors and mentees at Access Living.
If you’re interested in becoming a mentor or a mentee, contact Mary Lee Aherns. Download the flyers for mentors and mentees on the right-hand side of this page.
