Youth Reach Program

girlStudy
People In Motion wants to create a more caring community by creating awareness about some of the challenges youth and adults with disabilities face.

As part of our “Youth Reach” program we go to schools and organizations and do presentations  to the students to raise awareness.

Staff and two members who have disabilities tell “their story” to students. We also bring our Para Transit bus and students enjoy being in a wheelchair and trying to wheel on to the lift and being raised up. They can also take turns trying out our “Trail Ryder” an off road wheel chair. The presentation and time outside takes about 45 minutes.

The intent of these presentations is in a positive upbeat manner to  get students thinking about people who have disabilities and some of the challenges they face (accessibility/inclusion).

If you would like People In Motion to come to your school or organization let us know.

Youth can also get involved through our Peer Mentoring Program
