Partners in Policymaking logoThe application deadline for the 2012 class of Partners In Policymaking has been extended to May 13, 2011.   Only 30 individuals will be selected to participate in the Partners in Policymaking (PIP) program, sponsored by the Virginia Board for People with Disabilities (VBPD).  Don’t let this opportunity slip by.  If you are a parent of a young child with a developmental disability or an adult self-advocate residing in Virginia please consider applying soon.  The PIP program is highly regarded and often called “life-changing” by past participants. 

Class members, called Partners, learn about self-advocacy, supported employment, building inclusive communities, assistive technology, communication, independent living, and more from national experts.  VBPD covers all expenses for participants’ training, lodging, meals, and travel. 

Eight sessions are held in Richmond on Friday afternoon to late Saturday afternoon. For a complete schedule or to download the application, visit
