So I haven’t blogged much lately, but that is not because there is not a lot of things going on in the world of youth transition and CILs. Currently our Statewide Independent Living Council’s Youth Committee is planning our first ever summer youth leadership conference for June. We are way excited to welcome youth leaders from all six of the CILs in the state. We will have a ropes course, leadership games, good food, time to build relationships, and plan for the future of youth advocacy in Utah. We have picked up great ideas from the Montana Youth Leadership Forum and lot’s of other great folks we met in Houston a year ago. If you have any great ideas for our youth conference, or questions about how we are putting our conference together, drop me a line here on the blog.
In the meantime, if you haven’t found your way to the Youth Transition in CILs Facebook page yet you are missing out on daily updates of all the good stuff happening in the world of youth transition and independent living. Get on Facebook and head to Youth Transition in CILs and like the page today. Let’s spread the word about this great resource and get those likes into the hundreds or even the thousands!
