Leadership training for persons with disabilities

Posted by on January 5, 2009

The Pennsylvania Youth Leadership Network, the Center for Independent Living of Central Pennsylvania, and the Institute on Disabilities at Temple University will present Competence and Confidence: Partners in Policymaking – Emerging and Established Leaders (C2P2 EEL).  C2P2 EEL is free training for individuals with disabilities who want to develop leadership skills.

Both emerging leaders, who are 18-30 with disabilities and are beginning their careers, and established leaders, who have disabilities and experience in their chosen field, are eligible to apply.  Emerging Leaders attend all five leadership development training sessions, participate in a summer internship and are matched with an experienced leader with disabilities.  Established Leaders attend two leadership development training sessions tailored to enhance leadership skills and mentor and coach a future leader with disabilities.

Training sessions will take place February 27th and 28th, Leadership and Diversity; March 20th and 21st, Sharpening Team Building Efforts; April 17th and 18th, Individual Leadership Development; May 8th and 9th, Effective Community Service; and September 11th and 12th, Community Building.

All sessions will be held at the Hilton Philadelphia Airport. Travel and accommodation reimbursements are available and meals are included. The deadline for applications is January 26th.  For more information, email Kathy Miller at mill[email protected] or call 215-204-9395 or 215-204-1356 (Voice/TTY).
