Training Alumni Association
Completing Partners in Policymaking or the Youth Leadership Academy (Forum) was only the beginning.
The Training Alumni Association (TAA) is designed to facilitate grassroots advocacy on behalf of Virginians with disabilities to advance systems change. TAA members are Partners in Policymaking and Youth Leadership Academy graduates.
Virginia needs strong advocates for disability rights engaged in their own communities on the issues that matter. The TAA currently has four regional Advocacy Chapters (Northern Virginia, Central Virginia, Southwest Virginia, and Tidewater). Chapter members use the skills they learned to further advocate for systems change throughout the Commonwealth.
