Develop Your Leadership – Disability Equality Training Series (DETS)

Can you imagine yourself as a leader?

The Youth Legacy Foundation shares information about opportunities in the community. We also partner with other organizations. Advocating Change Together (ACT) asked us to work together on this exciting program. It’s a leadership development training for people across age and disability.

Advocating Change Together is a nationwide leader in developing and presenting human rights training to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

A group of two self-advocates and an ally will present to a group of 10-12 learners. We can meet at your school or another location where youth are gathered together, or choose a location that works well for the group. People with all disabilities of all ages are encouraged to join. There are 12 sessions.
