About C2P2

Modeled after Minnesota's Partners in Policymaking, Competence and Confidence: Partners in Policymaking is a leadership development training program designed for:
- adults with intellectual disabilities and/or on the autism spectrum, and for
- parents of school age children with intellectual disabilities and/or on the autism spectrum.

C2P2 participants make a commitment to attend multiple two-day training sessions during the course of a year. The program selects highly motivated people who represent different ethnic backgrounds and, who for the most part are not already involved in advocacy organizations.
