About Tier 2: ADVOCACY

This 5-month cohort experience empowers participants to continue to strengthen their skills in supporting and advocating for self-determination regarding sexual health, development, and healthy relationships through mentorship, education, and skill-building activities.

With support of the facilitators, participants of Tier 2 will each create a unique tool and a personalized advocacy plan for supporting individuals with ID/DD regarding sexual health and development.  Graduating participants will have access to using all the tools created by their cohort group as well as all former and future cohort groups.

Please Note: The time commitment for Tier 2 is approximately 4-6 hours per month (depending on the complexity of your advocacy plan and tool).

You can view/use our Printable Overview (PDF) of the program which also outlines each Tier.
