YP! NY Institute for Self Advocacy

YOUTH POWER! is still accepting applications for the New York Institute for Self-Advocacy (NYISA).

NYISA is YP!’s newest initiative; designed to train young adults (21+) with developmental/intellectual 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. The deadline for applications is January 28, 2018.

If you, or any of the potential applicants, have questions or require a Microsoft Word application form please email Zack Kilmer at zkilmer@youthpowerny.org or 518-708-3808.
