VT Leadership Series
Recruitment for the fifth Vermont Leadership Series has begun!
The Vermont Leadership Series trains Vermonters with developmental disabilities and their family members to be advocates for positive social change. Lessons include steps to be a leader, how to get your point across, and key issues in disability rights.
These workshops will include presentations, panels, and interactive exercises illustrating legislative advocacy skills, ways to promote positive attitudes about disability, and inclusive practices that harness the strengths of all.

These weekend sessions begin Saturday morning and end Sunday afternoon.
This training is divided over three weekends:
