Description: The Office of Tiered Supports and Specialized Services is sponsoring regional Dare to Dream Student Leadership conferences that highlight strategies and information to prepare high school students with disabilities for college and career. Each conference features 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 workshops 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, career path developments, and student rights and responsibilities in college. Dare to Dream has long been a positive and empowering experience for thousands of New Jersey's students.
