The Center on Youth Voice, Youth Choice (CYVYC) has launched a new website! CYVYC is a national youth resource center on alternatives to guardianship. It promotes the use of alternatives to guardianship nationally through research, self-advocacy, outreach, coalition building and education.
The new website features:
- a US map with information about alternatives to guardianship in different states;
- photos and bios of our Youth Ambassadors and a Youth Ambassador Training Curriculum;
- resources for many different audiences including ones written in plain language;
stories about youth; and
- information on State Teams that are part of a national Community of Practice.
Visit the new CYVYC website to learn more at www.youth-voice.org.
This initiative is funded under ACL’s Projects of National Significance, which focuses on the most pressing issues affecting people with developmental disabilities and their families. Through these projects, ACL supports the development of national and state policy and awards grants and contracts that enhance the independence, productivity, inclusion, and integration of people with developmental disabilities.
