About the Training

Youth transition is a new required service of CILs under the “New Core Service” of WIOA.  But youth aren’t a service and "by and for youth" isn’t new to the Independent Living Movement.  This presentation will help you take the mystery out of youth transition and learn how your CIL can excel at providing IL services to young people with disabilities in your community.  Our presenters will explore the history of youth in IL, what it means to have youth as a target population for CILs, strategies for reaching youth and involving them in meaningful roles in your CIL, and how to plan for successful youth leadership and services.

Target Audience

CIL Program Managers, IL Specialists, Youth Transition Facilitators, and any other staff who work with youth with disabilities.
