The National Council on Independent Living (NCIL) is excited to announce a new opportunity for our Youth Transition Coordinators at CILs. Through the generous support of the Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation (MEAF) we have received a grant called the Greater Washington Internship Coalition M>PWR Project. This grant will allow us to sponsor 3 Youth Transition Coordinators to attend the 2016 NCIL Conference in Washington, DC this summer!

There will be ample opportunities for the Youth Transition Coordinators to learn about WIOA, receive resources, and programming ideas through the 24 available workshops. On average, there are 1,000 conference participants that coordinators will be able to network with. Additionally, there will be a small time set aside for Youth Transition Coordinators to have an in depth dialogue about youth programming.
