It’s time to honor a young person who is striving to make the world a better place!

Each year, the Vermont Center for Independent Living receives nominations of outstanding young people for the Deborah Lisi-Baker Youth Leader Award.

The VCIL Board of Directors created the award in 2006 in honor of the disability rights organization’s then-executive director and in honor of emerging leaders who are moving forward the promise of disability rights and the independent living movement. Lisi-Baker has spent much of her life advocating for the human and civil rights of people with disabilities and continues to do so. She served as VCIL’s executive director for many years until retiring from the position in 2009.
