Overview

  1. 1. Access Living of Metropolitan Chicago Youth Leadership Training ProgramOverviewThe goal of the Youth Leadership Training Program is to provide youth with disabilities thecritical transferable leadership talents needed to inspire and motivate groups to become a forcefor positive social change.Our Program moves youth through the arc of leadership by providing them with the opportunityto (1) learn about themselves and how to develop a stronger identity about who they are as ayouth with a disability, (2) engage in thoughtful and guided dialogue about essential leadershipskills and the power of utilizing groups and (3) ultimately lead by putting what they learn intopractice in real-life situations. This all occurs under a cohesive thread employing anintergenerational approach to continually discuss and learn what worked or didn’t work and why.We believe this “Learn, Dialogue, Lead” model of leadership development facilitates thecultivation of leadership skills that youth will not only need for today but to also keep youthactively engaged citizens throughout their lives.
