Youth Resources

“Combining the dreams of young people with the experience of seasoned advocates…”

The National Council on Independent Living is creating resources for Youth Transition Coordinators at Centers for Independent Living. These resources will discuss a wide array of topics such as: youth outreach, independent living activities, and fundraising. Combining the dreams of young people with the experience of seasoned advocates will only expand the capacity of the Independent Living Movement. NCIL is dedicated to an intergenerational Independent Living Movement. When we work together we will become successful.

These resources are designed to be helpful for Centers for Independent Living. If you are a Youth Transition Coordinator (YTC) or work with youth at a CIL, NCIL would love to hear from you. Please reach out to the Youth Transition Fellow, Keri Gray, to discuss these resources and also ways to connect with YTCs across the country.
