Seminar offers information on disability inclusion practices.
People in the national service field interested in learning better ways to provide effective practices in disability inclusion have a chance to do so at a seminar this month in Arlington, Va.
The National Service Inclusion Project (NSIP) is hosting the National Disability Inclusion Leadership Development Institute on Dec. 10–11 at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City.
Participants will learn skills, training resources and peer networks necessary to provide high-quality, research-based training on disability inclusion. Highlights include:
Disability Inclusion Train-the-Trainer. Two-day, highly interactive training from the basics
to the more complex aspects of inclusion. Participants will gain the skills necessary to provide in-depth training on a variety of inclusion topics, the tools and resources to
create inclusive policies and procedures, and the skills required to design effective outreach and recruitment plans.
Veterans and Wounded Warrior Advanced Institute. Learning from multifaceted viewpoints including the national service network, military personnel, Operation Able Vets and alumni, explore how to establish national service as a desired transition option for returning military members.
Service as a Path to Employment Advanced Institute Track. Explore how service participants contribute to the community, gain valuable skills, explore career paths, and develop social networks that can lead to competitive employment. This track will identify effective practices in working with vocational rehabilitation and developmental disability agencies in recruiting and supporting individuals in service. This session will also include information about Department of Labor services available through a network of American Job Centers.
