Young Adult Programs

We believe in the incredible talents and futures of young adults with neuromuscular diseases.

We are committed to supporting you, a young adult, with resources, programming, and community connection as you move through high school, higher education, employment and independent living. MDA's peer-led initiatives create solutions for you to exceed limits and unleash your fullest potential.
