About Course

The Ability Leadership Program - North Carolina (ALP-NC) is an inclusive program that prepares people to engage in disability rights advocacy. The Disability Rights movement in NC needs advocate leaders - your story is important! We will: 

  • develop personal advocacy stories
  • practice self and collective advocacy skills
  • and network with others who can help solve problems and remove barriers to access

Who can be an ALP-NC Leader (participant)?

  • Adults with an intellectual and/or developmental disability (IDD)
  • Family members or caregivers of persons with lived experience
  • In-field professionals supporting people with IDD

Small group meetings are also held between sessions. Up to 15 participants will be accepted for this cohort. Each class is chosen to represent a range of experiences, demographics, and access needs. Those not selected for this cohort will be invited to apply for future cohorts.
