SILC Youth Transition Committee Conference Call
February 19, 2015 @ 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
The toll free number is 866-630-9353.
I am writing on behalf of the MOSILC’s Transition Youth Committee. Our goal is to get more youth involved in the council, in this committee, and in your centers. The first step in doing this is by asking CIL’s to speak with the youth that they support to determine if they are interested in being a voice of change. Their feedback and participation is very important to us. If, they are interested we’d love to have them participate on our next conference call on February 19th from 3-4pm. The toll free number to call in on is: 1/866-630-9353. We also hope to have some MO Youth Leadership Forum alumni on the call too. The goal is to have as many CIL’s as possible be able to commit to having at least one youth participate in our next conference call.
Two of the questions we’d like to ask these youth leaders are:
- What’s going on in your community that you would like to advocate for change for? What changes would you propose?
- What is working or going right for you now?
One other avenue we are working on is getting more youth around the state involved in the MO Youth Leadership Forum which is July 26-30th. More information can be obtained at: Goal: to get more youth involved in all advocacy and leadership aspects statewide. Deadline for sign up: March 1st. Applications were sent out in December and a very few number of applications have been submitted.
Thanks for your commitment to youth.
Next Transition Youth Committee Conference call: February 19th from 3-4pm. The toll free number to call in on is: 1/866-630-9353.
