HCC’s Future Leaders Program


Join Future Leaders and meet other youth across the State in the bleeding disorders community. Future Leaders find inspiration among other teens to share your voice.  

The Hemophilia Council of California’s (HCC’s) Future Leaders Program provides leadership training and advocacy tools for teens and young adults affected by bleeding disorders. Leading up to their annual Legislative Day, Future Leaders gain understanding and skills on their role in the government process, insurance and programs that support care, educational opportunities, and how to be an effective advocate. Participants hear from statewide and national healthcare leaders, learn self-reliance, connect with their peers, meet with legislators at the State Capitol, have fun and find inspiration to share their voice where it matters most.



High school students (Grade 9 – 12) who have a bleeding disorder, are a sibling of someone with a bleeding disorder, or child of someone with a bleeding disorder.
