Youth Services

TDN’s youth programs provide all youth the opportunity to develop positive peer-to-peer relationships, independent living skills, career exploration, and connections to community resources.

TDN partners with MRS and local high schools to bring our programming to the students of Genesee County. Our workshops in the classroom relate to Advocacy, Self- Advocacy, Peer Support, Job Exploration, Workplace Readiness, Work Base Learning, and Counseling on Post- Secondary Education.

We also offer a weekly Young Adult night for ages 18-20 to join us for an evening of food, friendship, and fun. We believe everyone deserves to have a safe space and a community to call their own.

Contact Meg today to find out how to get connected! You can reach Meg at meghans@disnetwork.org or at (810) 730-0248.
