Reach Out: Maximizing Engagement and Accessibility on a Tight Budget

The daily management and potential expansion of our disability programs is difficult work. We know first-hand the delicate balance between dreaming big and budget realities. We’re all committed to exemplary access and accommodations, but we also know that they can be difficult to afford. If your organization could use some practical tips and resources to engage new people, fundraise, and provide exemplary accessibility without breaking the bank, this workshop series is perfect for you.

NCIL, with support provided by The HSC Foundation, will hold four one-hour webinars on topics recommended by members of the Youth Transitions Collaborative. These are the day-to-day issues non-profits conducting youth and disability work struggle with daily.

The entire series is free-of-charge, but each call is limited to 100 participants. Registration will be closed when capacity is reached. Register online.
