Community Leadership Academy

By: Joan Baum, Director of Program Services

New Horizons Disability Empowerment Center (NHDEC) is proud to announce its Fall CLA Course. With over 50 million Americans identifying as having a disability, it is becoming increasingly important that this segment has more of a voice. Our Community Leadership Academy is a FREE 6-week course. This course presents participants with information covering a brief history of the Independent Living Movement, the ADA (Americans With Disabilities Act), the IL Network and Centers as well as knowledge about the services they provide, along with the opportunities available to become more involved in system-wide efforts to protect the rights of people with disabilities. This curriculum gives participants (disabled, caregivers or friends) the opportunity to discover their own personal goals related to independent living, community engagement possibilities and participation in the IL movement and even learn about Robert’s Rules of Order. We welcome anyone with an interest in helping to create an impact in their community. Call for more info!
