The Virginia Board for People with Disabilities (VBPD) is seeking applicants for the next class of Partners in Policymaking (PIP), to begin September, 2017.  This program is ideal for people with developmental disabilities and parents of children with developmental disabilities.  Participants will build their advocacy and leadership skills by hearing from state and national experts on how to impact local and state policies.  Learning how to build positive partnerships between families and community leaders (to include schools, employers and elected officials) will help shape inclusive communities and quality education.  Graduates of the PIP program will have the skills to improve the lives of those with disabilities and build stronger communities for everyone at the local and state levels.
