Dare to Dream
Student Leadership Conferences

The Office of Special Education is proud to sponsor regional Dare to Dream Student Leadership conferences that highlight the importance of student self-advocacy and leadership. Each conference features presentations from accomplished students and adults with disabilities who have demonstrated exemplary self-advocacy and leadership skills. Additionally, the conference program includes a variety of concurrent breakout sessions that provide conference attendees opportunities to gain insight into the transition and self-advocacy process. Students participate in workshops led by their peers who are developing their own self-advocacy and leadership skills. Parents are also welcome to attend with their district. Workshop topics include goal setting, self-discovery, student self-advocacy, and planning your future. The Dare to Dream Student Leadership conferences have long been a positive and empowering experience for thousands of New Jersey’s students.
