Young Friends

The Starkloff Disability Institute Young Friends strives to create a world that welcomes people with disabilities by informing a new generation. Young professional members help raise awareness about Starkloff Disability Institute through social events, and they serve on one of three committees – education, events / marketing, or membership. Members are asked to make an annual contribution to Starkloff Disability Institute and enjoy invitations to exclusive networking events.
