Youth Disability Advocacy Network (YDAN) - Training Opportunities   (June onwards  . . . )

The Youth Disability Advocacy Network (YDAN) would like to share with you inform on their new exciting entrepreneurship, employment, and public speaking training programs for Young People With Disability (YPWD), called UNLEASHED.

The UNLEASHED training program will build upon the successes, ideas, and principles of similar successful programs run by LGA's and disability inclusion organisations. Our specialist training facilitators, external experts, and volunteers will themselves have lived experience with a disability or access need. The program will be open and highly inclusive of young people in minority groups, who may not have access to similar training opportunities.

Just over a week ago, YDAN released a survey to better understand the specific areas YPWD would like to gain confidence in, as well as to understand the most significant barriers to employment they face due to workplaces lack of knowledge on disability. We are asking that:
 
  1. Any Australian, of any age, with a disability fill in our survey, to let us know what they would’ve loved to have seen in a training program when they were younger, based on their experience with disability and barriers to employment;
  2. Young people with disability (YPWD, aka prospective participants) aged 14-25, to let us know what they want to see in a program like UNLEASHED; and
  3. Lastly, YPWD interested in participating in our project fill out our expression of interest built into the survey.
The brilliant team of trainers in UNLEASHED will use this survey information to tailor their content in order to be as relevant and useful as possible to the Western Australian community.     To access the survey and complete your expression on interest in participating in this project, please register at the following link: https://bit.ly/3fFGXai
