Our Mission

ALP-NC is not just a training program – it’s even more so about preparing leaders to become part of the ALP-NC Network. We prioritize the connections and relationships we make with other class members and alumni that allow us to work together to create change at a larger scale. More than developing individual leaders, ALP-NC is building the collective leadership of our state. We’re here to lead – not just to learn!

Our Story

A free program designed for advocates of people with disabilities

Transcript: Our Story

“Have you ever wanted to make things better for people with disabilities? Do you believe that people with disabilities have important things to teach others? Would you like to learn how to be a leader? If you answered yes, then the ALP-NC training program is for you.  ALP-NC is a new class for people with and without disabilities. We will teach you how to be an advocate and leader for the disability community. You will work together with other advocates to make things better for people with disabilities.

 At least half of the people in the class will have intellectual or developmental disabilities. The other half of the class will be family members and people who work in the disability community.  We will learn how to tell our stories. We will learn how to make a difference with our stories. And we will learn from each other.

We will work online together. Don’t worry if you haven’t done this before. We will show you how to use the online programs. If you need help with this application, please call us. We are excited for you to join our class.”
