2022 Community Training Opportunities


Westmoreland County, in partnership with Achieving True Self, is offering free trainings for the community in 2022 that will increase awareness and understanding amongst businesses, churches, community groups, recreational organizations, and local law enforcement in order to better support individuals with autism, intellectual disabilities, behavioral health diagnoses, and/or learning challenges. Together we can maximize potential and opportunities for all.

Something for everyone. Something for  you. Let's connect, learn, and help make Westmoreland County more inclusive for people of all abilities.

For more information and/or to schedule a training, contact Monica Minyon via email or at 724.830.3625.
