David (Dave) A. Young (63) was born in the southwestern Ohio city of Springfield.  He has one son, Mathew, age 28.

After graduating from High School, he entered Ohio Sate University in Columbus, Ohio.  Not knowing what course of study to pursue, he chose a relatively new program at OSU – Speech and Hearing Therapy.  Upon completion of his studies at OSU, he worked briefly as a public school speech and hearing therapist.

During that time, he became interested in the Presidential campaign of John F. Kennedy and became involved in the campaign in Ohio.  After JFK’s successful election, he was awarded a Veteran’s Administration Graduate Fellowship to specialize in Clinical Audiology.  He was assigned to major VA centers in Chicago, Washington and eventually Boston where he was temporarily assigned to the Joseph Kennedy Jr. Children’s Hospital.  During that assignment he became involved with the Kennedy family and the Kennedy Foundation.  Upon completion of his graduate fellowship, he returned to Ohio State Graduate School to study Speech Pathology and Audiology.  There, he was assigned to work at the United Cerebral Palsy Association as Speech Pathologist and Audiologist in various clinics and centers, where he stayed for the next 25 years, the final 15 in St. Louis, MO as Executive Vice President.  After leaving UCPA, David became Executive Vice President of the American Diabetes Association and returned to Ohio while his son attended OSU.

David has been an activist on behalf of developing programs for the disabled.  He became a fierce conservative at the time of the JFK assassination, supporting Barry Goldwater and other GOP candidates over the span of 30 years.  He founded several innovative programs for the severely handicapped that have been replicated across the country.  A life long Catholic, he was appointed to the Catholic Commission on the Handicapped by the late Cardinal John Carberry of St. Louis to advise the Archdiocese on how to make its parish facilities and services accessible to the disabled.

His hobbies include cooking (German/Amish), reading historic and mystery novels, traveling in the Eastern USA, and writing critical essays about the state of charity in America today.  He retired in 1998 and now resides in Columbus, Ohio, close to, but 50 miles away from his son Matt who has inherited his father’s conservative philosophy.  Dave now serves as President with his co-founders, Carolyn Abbott and Donald T. Miller, of America’s Voices.
