APRIL Youth Talks
Individual Training Registration
APRIL understands that across the country youth and young adults is the hot topic. Many Centers for Independent Living and Statewide Independent Living Councils are unsure how to get youth involved. This year we have asked our youth expert mentors to present on topics that could assist yourgoals of starting a program or growing the existing youth involvement, you may already have.
We understand that not everyone is at the point in their CIL or SILC to have a Youth Peer to Peer, but we want to support and assist the best way we can with these calls.

Facilitate verses Lecture
Join us for an interactive talk about how to facilitate a conversation rather than lecture young people on a topic. Inviting youth to have a conversation and share their thoughts rather than tell them the “right” way to do things is much more productive. Come learn how to do this by joining us.
