Hope summer is a blast. We are well on our way to planning a solid FYSOP week for everyone, especially our wonderful issue area: DISABILITIES. If you think that people with disabilities can’t kick butt, guess again.
Just because you have a disability doesn’t mean you don’t have the ABILITY to do anything! During our wonderful week of service and education, we hope to bring to light some issues and misconceptions about people with disabilities.
For example, did you know that there is a renowned African Dancer named Sidiki Conde, who lost the ability to use his legs at age 14 but is the founder of an African dance company, Tokounou?
He travels all across the country performing and holding workshops and classes for all, those with or without disABILITIES.
And so, as you can see, this is just a taste of what FYSOP 19-Disabilities Issue Area is all about. We look forward to meeting everyone on August 20(for staff) and August 25 (new students!)
If you guys have any questions, comments, concerns, or just want to chat with some cool people, please, give us a call or email!
firstname.lastname@example.org or call 617-353-4710
Hope to see you all in a month!
Gabby and Becky
