Inviting Schools to Participate in Disability Awareness Program
Know of a high school or middle school that could benefit from a disability awareness program? CHEER (Consciousness Helps Encourage Equal Respect) is a school-based program designed to encourage inclusion and open the eyes of students to see their fellow peers with special needs as more than their disability. The week-long program invites student volunteers, called CHEER Leaders, to adopt a disability for a day. First Things First supplies each participating school with an equipment kit for students to simulate various impairments. The week culminates with an assembly featuring a video of Kurt and Brenda discussing the importance of inclusion and the negative impact division causes.
