What is Leaders Without Limits?

Prospective Board Member and Advocacy Training

Leaders Without Limits (LWL) is a free 6-part training class open to consumers, general public and TWP employees, presented by The Whole Person. LWL is designed to develop and encourage potential advocates for people with disabilities, who want to be more involved in serving on boards and commissions, and teaches parliamentary procedures, leadership skills, open meeting laws, and much more.

This 6-part training is open to people with disabilities and people interested in advocating for disability rights. We will study how boards and commissions function, how to use Robert’s Rules of Order during a meeting, and what can be expected of a volunteer to serve on a board or commission.

Community leaders will also be invited to share their expertise and participants will have the opportunity to put their advocacy in action by participating in the Kansas City Mayoral and City Council Candidates Forum that will take place at The Whole Person on June 11, 2019.
