Date: Aug 01 - 03, 2010

American Youth aged 12-21 who we are interested in creating international change for peers with disabilities through human rights advocacy and cutting-edge awareness raising techniques are invited to apply to attend the Open Hands �Youth Ability Summit� in Damascus, Syria from August 1-3 2010. Those selected will receive a free, round-trip ticket from anywhere in the continental U.S. and full accommodations to attend the Summit.

At the Summit, participants will work together with Syrian youth involved in disability rights advocacy to share our cultures and perspectives, learn about the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and to create an action-packed, youth-centered global awareness campaign.
