SibNet is the Internet's first and largest online community for adult brothers and sisters of people with disabilities. Created in 1996 as a listserv, SibNet became an email-based Yahoogroup in 1998 and still exists in this format.
In 2009, SibNet was also offered as a Facebook group. And in 2012, the Sibling Leadership Network became a co-sponsor of SibNet to provide members information about advocacy efforts and legislation.
Don Meyer, director of the Sibling Support Project, is the founder and lead administrator of SibNet and is greatly assisted by adult siblings who serve as volunteer hosts.
Even if you don't want to become a Sibshop facilitator, you can join us for the first day for a lively and rewarding discussion of sibs' issues across the lifespan. Please know: Registration costs are determined by the agencies hosting the workshops and trainings. For information and to register, please contact these agencies directly.
Below you'll find dates for upcoming Sibshop facilitator trainings and other sibling workshops. If you'd like to discuss hosting a training in your community, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
