Meet the Youth Leadership Team!

In 2016, AsIAm made an open call to young people across Ireland who would like to act as ambassadors for our organisation, by directing and influencing our work, the work of others, the media and the general public.

The YLT campaign, advise and direct AsIAm’s work on youth issues to ensure that they reflect our communities needs and priorities. The YLT plays a vital role in ensuring all of AsIAm work and advocacy is reflective of the experiences of autistic young people. Without further ado, meet the team!
