Are you a Vermonter with a Developmental Disability or a family member?
Have you ever wondered how you could make a difference on issues that affect people with disabilities?

The Vermont Leadership Training Series may be for you!


The Vermont Leadership Series is a collaboration between the Center on Disability and Community Inclusion at the University of Vermont, the Vermont Developmental Disabilities Council, Green Mountain Self Advocates, and the Vermont Family Network. The goal of the Vermont Leadership Series is to train Vermonters with developmental disabilities, their family, and other community members, to become leaders in advocating and advancing the rights of people with developmental and intellectual disabilities.  Each year approximately 10 new participants attend workshops that include presentations, panels, and interactive exercises illustrating the history and meaning of the disability rights movement.  Those who attend learn about organizing for change and participating in media campaigns.  This series increases each budding leader's capacity to make Vermont a better place to live.
