We are excited to announce that the Center on Youth Voice, Youth Choice (CYVYC) is now accepting applications from teams interested in participating in our Community of Practice to promote alternatives to guardianship for youth with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) in the United States.
CYVYC is a national resource center that was founded in the Fall of 2020 through a grant from the Administration on Community Living. During the course of this five-year grant, we are supporting State Teams to promote alternatives to guardianship, so that fewer youth with IDD have legal guardians. We are currently seeking to recruit 4 new State Teams to be part of our Community of Practice and to support Youth Ambassadors in those states to be leaders for change.
Are you part of a team that is promoting alternatives to guardianship in your state? If the answer is yes, apply today for CYVYC’s Community of Practice. Our Community of Practice fosters a rich dialogue around best practices, provides a framework for sustainable change, and centers the voices of youth leaders in this work. Community of Practice members work in partnership with us to create lasting systemic change in their states.
Applications are due by 5 PM PST on February 10, 2022.
If you have any questions about the application process or need any accommodations, please contact Morgan Whitlatch, firstname.lastname@example.org, 202-596-6116.
