- 18-21 years old
- a high school graduate
- College bound
- Be able to monitor their own medication
- Be a self-advocate
- Possess a basic knowledge of Judaism/religious observance
Yozma cannot accept (at this time) young adults with physical disabilities, those who need help with basic daily life skills or those who cannot take their own medication.
