An Opportunity for Young Adults with ASD: MAC's Young Adult Leaders Fellowship




August 20, 2013

Massachusetts Advocates for Children invites young adults 18-26 on the Autism Spectrum to apply for an innovative "Young Adult Leaders Fellowship," which provides opportunities to learn the professional skills needed to advocate on behalf of other youth with disabilities.

The Fellowship is a partnership between Massachusetts Advocates for Children and the Institute for Community Inclusion at UMass Boston. The Young Adult Leaders Fellowship consists of one year part-time advocacy training under the supervision of the Autism Project Advocate and senior attorney.

A small stipend is provided.

Please help us get the word out to young adults who might be interested in this Fellowship. We would appreciate it if you would forward this information to inform other individuals, families, and organizations. For an application or if you have questions, please feel free to contact me at 617-357-8431 ext. 241, or cmayes@massadvocates.org.

The deadline for return of application materials is September 20, 2013.
