Transition & Youth Projects

Milwaukee County Advocacy Project

The Milwaukee County Advocacy & Consumer Education Grant provides information, support and training to Milwaukee county youth (typically ages 14-21) and their families. The grant targets underserved populations within the City of Milwaukee while also conducting outreach to families in other areas of Milwaukee County. Project activities include trainings for students, parents and educators on self-advocacy and transition, as well as the Youth Leadership Summit for high school students with disabilities. WI FACETS partners with IndependenceFirst, a local independent living center, on this program.
