Young adults with an ABI have always played a crucial role in our organisation. From planning and volunteering at camp to providing training for our volunteers, and presenting in various forums about their ABI and Heads Together.
This has evolved into the ABI Leadership Team. A program which provides leadership training, peer mentoring, and ultimately leadership opportunities for young adults with an ABI. These opportunities include public speaking to raise awareness and educate others about the real life experiences of living with an ABI, providing support and mentoring, and volunteering within the organisation.
Following an intake process, an individual plan is created with a peer mentor and support person. The ABI team member will then be involved in leadership seminars, quarterly team meetings, and will take part in a variety of leadership opportunities as per their individual plan.
Becoming part of the ABI Leadership Team gives people the opportunity to build their strengths, develop their potential and create their own life plan.
