Competence and Confidence Partners in Policymaking (C2P2)

Become a leader in your community. Learn to work with policymakers to make a difference in the quality of life for people with disabilities.

C2P2 is a free leadership development training program for Pennsylvanians who:

  • are family members of a school-age child with an intellectual disability and/or autism
  • are adults with an intellectual disability and/or autism

The program selects highly motivated people who represent different ethnic backgrounds and, who for the most part are not already involved in advocacy organizations. C2P2 participants make a commitment to attend a series of scheduled, multiple two-day trainings in sessions that are either virtual and in-person.

Participants learn:  

  • about local, state and national issues affecting people with disabilities from experts, self advocates or people with lived experience;
  • to foster a partnership between people who need supports and services and those who make policy and law;
  • to advocate for themselves and others;
  • to teach policymakers a new way of thinking about people with disabilities.
  • C2P2 offers free meals, travel reimbursements, and lodging when applicable.
  • C2P2 is funded by Pennsylvania's Office of Developmental Programs.
