MDRC’s Leadership Engagement & Advocacy Development (LEAD) Program is accepting applications for BIPOC Adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. This program is for those that are interested in developing leadership and advocacy skills to dismantle oppression in the disability community.
The GOAL of the LEAD Program is to make change in the BIPOC disability community. During the leadership cohort we will empower and equip adults with disabilities to feel confident while advocating for themselves and telling their own stories. Participants will develop disability pride, strengthen their advocacy skills, and explore more advocacy needs in the BIPOC Community.
LEAD’s programming is developed to bring leaders together to build community and disability pride throughout Michigan.
Those that participate in the program and attend all sessions will receive up to a $250 stipend.
Participants will also receive mentorship and guidance to assist with obtaining employment and paid leadership opportunities.
Applications are Due by: September 8th, 2023
