EMERGING LEADERS APPLICATION


Apply to the Emerging Leaders Program Here!


Disability Voices United, a California statewide advocacy organization directed by and for people with disabilities and their families, is launching the Emerging Leaders Program. This exciting new program focuses on growing and nurturing self-advocates with developmental disabilities and family advocates to become leaders in their communities and the state. We particularly want to focus on lifting up diverse and underserved future leaders, including people of color, people who speak languages other than English, self-advocates who are nonspeaking, and those from rural areas.


The Emerging Leaders Program consists of a four-part online leadership training to provide individuals with the tools and information to increase their leadership skills and become active leaders in their communities. The trainings will take place on Zoom for two hours from 10 am – 12 pm on the following Saturday mornings:


  • December 11 - Orientation
  • January 22 - Session 1
  • January 29 - Session 2
  • February 5 - Session 3
  • February 12 - Session 4


To be accepted into the Emerging Leaders Program, you must commit to attending all five sessions.

 

The application is due by Sunday, November 28, 2021.
