1 day before, 3 days before

Here's a link to all of the Ability Awareness Materials.
If you weren't able to make a volunteer training, and you haven't volunteered for AAW before, you might want to take a look at the materials. There are directions for each Ability Station in there, and it might help to read those ahead of time.

Here's a link to the video of the 1pm training today.

There are a number of volunteer slots left to fill. If you can help, please do!

Ability Awareness Week Starts Monday!
Please mark your calendars for March 25th - 29th. We are excited to offer this exciting program again but we will need lots of help!


Volunteering for this experience is easy and fun, and those who have volunteered before express how meaningful it is for them.

What is Ability Awareness Week?
It is an interactive, hands-on, multi-sensory experience designed to help students increase awareness about what it is like to live with a variety of disabilities. Some may be familiar to them, some may not, so our goal is to increase awareness and empathy. We also focus on creating a space for dialogue, teaching that it is okay to be curious about individual differences and show how communication fosters connection!


Our students really enjoy Ability Awareness Week and look at it as one of the highlights of the year!

As a volunteer you lead small groups of students through an easy, guided experience and foster dialogue as it comes up. You do not have to be an expert in awareness of differing abilities! All you need is a willingness to participate, your curiosity and your enthusiasm!

Two Volunteer Training Sessions Friday March 22nd:
Session 1 will be at 1:00pm (school out at 12:30pm), and one at 6:30pm, both in the Media Center. Supervised children are welcome to either session. It will be short, sweet and will get you prepared to facilitate! If you can't make either, please let me know so I can try to bring you up to speed. Even if you are a veteran, we are bringing in some fresh content this year!

We appreciate your help in making this a great success!

With thanks,
