Partners in Policymaking is offering free training for residents statewide with intellectual or developmental disabilities and parents of young children with disabilities.
The free program, which begins in early June in Raleigh, will teach leadership skills and train people with disabilities to present their views on policies that affect them.
Participants will be reimbursed for mileage and meeting expenses. Applications must be postmarked by May 11.
