Mentor pairs engage in developmental and action learning experiences. The curriculum covers the following topics: disability history/culture; identity development/pride; systemic and internalized oppression; power dynamics in mentoring relationships; creating mutual goals; building/sustaining social networks; dealing with anger and conflict; systems change advocacy; root cause analysis; action planning; and building a community ready for action. In addition, pairs conduct a leadership project in their local community.
