APRIL Youth Talks
APRIL understands that across the country youth and young adults is the hot topic. Many Centers for Independent Living and Statewide Independent Living Councils are unsure how to get youth involved. This year we have asked our youth expert mentors to present on topics that could assist your goals of starting a program or growing the existing youth involvement you may already have.
Every other month we will have one mentor present on a topic that is often discussed in our Youth Peer to Peer Mentoring for $50 per site per training or $35 for APRIL members. The mentor will present for the first 45 minutes, and then the next 45 minutes will be an opportunity for an open discussion amongst all callers on that topic. During that time, we can brainstorm, share experiences, and ask questions while we learn from each other with the guidance of our mentor. We understand that not everyone is at the point in their CIL or SILC to have a Youth Peer to Peer, but we want to support and assist the best way we can with these calls.
