Partners in Policymaking

Leave a comment

Partners in Policymaking is a leadership and advocacy training program that teaches self-advocates and family members of individuals with developmental disabilities to be community leaders.

PARTNERS is about systems change – creating, working towards, and achieving a vision of shared values. It is also based on the belief that the most effective public policy decisions are made by people using services in partnership with policymakers. It is about becoming confident in yourself, competent in the knowledge and skills you learn, and comfortable sharing the life experiences and expertise you bring to the program.

Participation in Partners requires a commitment to:
• Attend all six sessions
• Practice your skills
• Build a network of people with diverse backgrounds and life experiences
• Learn from national and local experts who share our visions and values.

2014 Application Deadline: May 1, 2014
