ABCD in Action is a learning experience that familiarizes participants with the basic ABCD concepts, shares tools to put concepts into practice, and provides opportunities for participants to develop their skills in using the tools to improve programs and the effectiveness of their nonprofit organization, collaborative or local agency.
Participants in ABCD in Action will work on real life situations and develop action plans to take home. Part of the training will emphasize how to include and engage traditionally excluded people (usually “labeled” people with disabilities or illness, youth, seniors, immigrant communities, etc.). This learning opportunity is open to all interested participants from all walks of life.
