About the Sherlock Sentinels

The Sherlock Sentinels are persons with disabilities and family members that want to share information with the Sherlock Center about the needs of Rhode Islanders with disabilities. Sentinels typically meet twice a year. Sentinels are also invited to participate in public forums to give input on the Sherlock Center's goals and five-year plan. All members receive a copy of the Sentinels Spotlight newsletter If you are interested in joining the Sherlock Sentinels, contact Conor O'Brien, Sentinels Facilitator.

Sentinels Advisory Committee

The Sherlock Advisory Committee has 15 to 20 Sentinels that meet 6 times a year to advise the Sherlock Center on its activities, goals, and five-year plan. The Sherlock Center's goal is to have an advisory committee that represents all of Rhode Island. The Sherlock Center will provide physical, language and material accommodations as needed. Members receive a stipend from the Sherlock Center for attending meetings and to help with transportation expenses. The committee typically meets at the Sherlock Center on the Rhode Island College campus. Due to COVID-19, meetings will be held using Zoom until further notice.

If you are interested in becoming an advisory committee member, contact Conor O'Brien, Sentinels Facilitator, for an application. All applicants will participate in an interview. The Sherlock Center invites new members to join the committee as openings become available.
