Programming Options

In-person Options:

A two-hour interactive program covering at least 8 areas of disability, accommodating approximately 80 participants, held at the Tolleson Family Activity Center (once re-opened and safe for all).

  • For Students
    Field trip! Students meet, connect with, and ask questions of people living with disabilities in a safe environment.

  • Teacher Training
    Teachers gain a better understanding and are equipped with ideas to accommodate and include students who have various differences.

  • Community Groups
    Families/groups experience the program together, sparking meaningful connections and conversations.

Because safety is a priority during this time of COVID-19, our in-person programs are on hold for the 2020-2021 school-year. In-person programming will resume when it is safe for all.
