About Leaders for Inclusion (LFI) Program
For Young Adults with Disabilities
Leaders for Inclusion (LFI) is a statewide five-year-long leadership development program funded by the Michigan Developmental Disabilities Council. Program goals are aimed at connecting emerging leaders with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) to paid leadership opportunities or employment opportunities to grow their leadership skills. The program will provide an in-depth training over a two and a half day retreat and ongoing online education sessions for people with I/DD including those with high and complex support needs, adults, and young adults from racially and ethnically diverse communities in Michigan. The LFI program will support two cohorts of learners per year comprised of 5-10 people with I/DD with a focus on recruiting 18-26-year-olds and people of color.
