People In Motion wants to create a more caring community by creating awareness about some of the challenges youth and adults with diverse abilities face.
As part of our “Youth Reach” program we go to schools and organizations and do hands-on presentations to the students to raise awareness, inclusiveness, diversity and accessibility.
Staff members 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 Hand Cycles. The presentation and time outside takes about 1 hour.
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).
No Program fees applicable.
If you would like People In Motion to come to your school or organization let us know.
