With great success in several other states, Maryland was excited to introduce this new training to self-advocates from across all four regions.

"Project S.T.I.R.: Steps Towards Independence and Responsibility".
A training specifically designed for Self-Advocates to: 

  • Say what is important to you
  • Say how you want to advocate for yourself
  • Say if they want to advocate for others, and
  • Say how you would like to get involved in Self-Advocacy

It doesn’t matter if you already advocate for yourself and want to learn new skills or if you want to start advocating for yourself and need support getting started.

This program will now be held through People on the Go - one of Maryland's Self-Advocacy groups. Future Project S.T.I.R. trainings and events will be scheduled soon! Stay tuned.
