NWVCIL will provide high quality instruction in self-advocacy as well as experiential opportunities for students to practice self-advocacy.
Qualifying consumer participants may earn up to $15.00 per hour of participation. For more information please contact Christine Wilcox, Transition Advocate at NWVCIL (304)296-6091 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
