About the Talk

Participants will learn strategies to engage young leaders with disabilities with their Statewide Independent Living Councils (SILC). Topics covered will include a SILC readiness assessment for youth engagement, how to build intergenerational partnerships, different recruitment methods, and how to prepare young leaders to be effective SILC members. Additional topics about youth engagement on boards and committees will also be discussed. Join the discussion on May 30; 2:00 - 3:30 PM Eastern.

Curious if this information might apply to you:

If you are a SILC, you can recruit more youth that are valuable contributing members.  If you work with young people learn how to get them more involved on a council.  They can take the same skills and engage youth on the SILC and apply it to different boards, committees, or councils.
