The New York Institute for Self-Advocacy
YOUTH POWER! is happy to announce that we are now accepting applications for the New York Institute for Self-Advocacy (NYISA). For those of you who don’t know, NYISA is YP!’s newest initiative to train young adults (21+) with developmental disabilities to advocate for themselves and their peers in community, systematic, and policy settings. Graduates from the institute will go on to become part of the Emerging Leaders Network, taking what they have learned and helping others across New York State become fellow self-advocates.
The four-day event takes place March 10-13, 2018
, at the Hilton Garden Inn in Troy. Click here to apply. The deadline for applications is January 28, 2018.
