CIL Youth Programs
Supporting youth and adults with disabilities in providing the tools to find employment. Additionally, our program partners with local colleges and universities in hosting workshops, panels, and seminars around topics of employment, accommodations, disability disclosure, and more.
Youth Programs offers different options for youth with disabilities ages 14-30 to learn more about advocacy and supporting causes that are important to them and their community. CIL’s Self-Advocacy Workshop series is offered in the classroom in partnership with local school districts, or at Ed Roberts Campus. Staff at CIL are available to mentor youth individually to develop independent living skills, and to support youth to advocate for disabled rights in the community.
CIL’s Social Club is a space where disabled youth between the ages of 14 and 30 can meet to engage in fun activities, connect with their peers and practice communication skills. Social Club meets twice a month, once in person and once online, and rotates through different activities including dance, art, crafts, and games.
