Leadership CILB is a special opportunity for individuals with disabilities in Broward County with the objective to create ambassadors and advocates within our disability community. The program is hosted by the Center for Independent Living of Broward and facilitated by Leadership CILB Program Director, Jene Kapela. This year's project was to inform people with disabilities how to prepare for any hurricane or severe storm. 
 
The group created a brochure providing detailed information about local resources and tips on how you can stay prepared in the event of a hurricane or storm. 
This year's class included our own Receptionist and I&R Specialist Penny Archie, Kashia C., Alessio M., Joseph P., Lisa S, and Derek W.
 
The program's graduation ceremony saw several people attend including alumni, friends, family and staff from the Center for Independent Living of Broward and community partners. Congratulations to all the graduates!
 
The Center for Independent Living of Broward wishes to thank our corporate sponsor, Royal Caribbean Cruises LTD as well as YOLO for hosting the graduation ceremony.
