Middle School

We’ve developed a model for middle schools that allows for more small group time to ask questions and connect. We’ve found discussions with students this age to be rich and very impactful. Services we provide include a presentation centered on visible and invisible disabilities and what inclusion looks like, a recommended schedule, suggested hands-on activities, and a “safe space” Q & A time.

High School

We have several options for high school including whole school assembly and smaller group presentations.

To learn more and find out how we can tailor our presentation for your school, reach out to Larkin O’Leary at [email protected]

Be the One

Someone who pledges to Be the One pushes past feelings of discomfort and fear to say hello and get to know someone they perceive as different. They invite others to join in and offer their help if it’s needed. They recognize the inherent value that every individual possesses and find joy in discovering the strength in our diversity. Even if no one else is, you can pledge to Be The One!
