APRIL and IL-NET presents:
Youth Coordinators Connect Call
Join us to begin building a community of peer support and sharing for Youth Program Coordinators. Come share your experiences, tips and tricks, and problem solve barriers to growing and implementing youth programs in your Center for Independent Living. Meet and learn from your colleagues throughout the country who are working towards the common goal of improving services for youth with disabilities.
Each month we will discuss a topic as it relates to youth programs and services. These topics are decided on as a group. We will also brainstorm solutions for barriers that may come up in your programs.
