Peer Mentor Training Program for People with I/DD
Applications Now Available for Cohort 2!
* Stipend Provided for Participation *
The North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities (NCCDD) is recruiting approximately 15 individuals to participate in a Peer Mentor training for people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities (I/DD). We are seeking individuals with lived experience with an I/DD with demonstrated knowledge of and direct personal experience navigating the North Carolina Medicaid delivery system.
Participants will learn key concepts to support peers with I/DD in a managed care system. All classes incorporate learning activities to be done as a group and individually, as well as knowledge checks. Participants will complete a pre-training and post-training evaluation to provide feedback which will be incorporated to improve the overall curriculum.
The program will begin in April 2022, with classes held weekly. All sessions will be held via Zoom to ensure the safety and health of the participants.
Individuals will receive a stipend of $300 to participate in the program and complete a pre-training and post-training evaluation. Upon completing the course and achieving an 85% proficiency score, individuals will receive a certificate of course completion.
