YPAHD Special Announcement!

Posted on Apr 25, 2015 in News

Hello Everyone!!

I’m really excited to announce that we have been granted approval to send to YPAHDites to Dallas Texas this June for the Huntington Society of America’s national conference and their National Youth Alliance Day.

This is a great opportunity to get an insight on how the HD world affects those in the USA and how much we can learn from each other. It allows you to connect to fellow youth who share the same obstacles and passions as us. If you are interested in this opportunity, please read through the attached sheet for instructions on how to apply.

As an individual who has been lucky enough to have this experience before, I strongly encourage you to apply and seize an opportunity to strengthen yourself and be encouraged to continue this journey of finding a cure for HD.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. 🙂

Talk soon.

Jaclyn Skinner
YPAHD President

Youth Mentorship Program

Posted on Mar 14, 2015 in News

There has been a great response to the Mentorship Program, and they are hoping to gain more mentees!

What is a Mentee?
Mentees are between the ages of 12-20 years old and are affected by HD.
The program will give you an opportunity to:

  • Build a positive relationship with a mentor who can provide valuable support.
  • Ask questions (about life in general or HD).

* Your mentor will keep your conversations private and safe.

If you are interested in applying or have any questions, please contact Erin Stephen or Lindsay Groot.
