Programming


Programming:

 Programming Objectives Consist of Four Separate Platforms:

  1. Awareness Building (We Are Able Campaign): Enabling youth with the opportunity to understand and appreciate disability culture and proper disability etiquette 
  2. Youth Empowerment: Engagement in youth summits, leadership programming, We Organization activities, and more
  3. Family Empowerment: Access to services, counseling, and other support 
  4. Mentorship Programming: Providing mentorship for all youth so that they can reach their fullest potential, and in order to improve their quality of life

We can either define our fate or be defined by it. Youth with disabilities can't just survive in life but need to understand they can thrive in life. Youth with disabilities can achieve the same accomplishments as everyone else; however, they need to be given the tools, the confidence and opportunities to do  so. This is what We Are Able hopes to provide. In addition, family of those with disabilities are an overlooked and undeserved group. While not enough people respond and reach out to those with disabilities, no one is talking about their families. It is tough being a sibling of a kid with a disability in a lot of ways. We Are Able will provide services to address this issue.
