MEGI stands for: Motivational Enhancement Group Intervention. This program is designed for 14-21 year old youth with disabilities focused on career exploration and development, in a small group setting.

The MI Basic training program consists of a three-day introduction to the core processes and skills utilized in MI followed by a month of time to practice those skills.  The training is completed with a one-day training to consolidate the learning and make plans for future skill development. Learners are encouraged from the start to assume responsibility for their learning and to become better stewards of their skills and their practice.
