This year our week coincides with the 30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. We hope that you can join us in celebrating this important legislation. -- The Disability Action Network (DAN) is a collaboration of agencies and community members working to create an inclusive culture that supports people with barriers to live the life people with disabilities desire. Our goals are to develop an inclusive and engaged community, support impactful activities, and promote awareness and advocacy. -- Join us on Wednesday, July 22nd at 12:00 PM CT as we discuss with Project LIVE students their transition from high school to adult life. Students engage in volunteer work, community action, vocational training, and daily living best practices, are amid the countless life experiences they focus on enhancing and exploring every single day. We’ll highlight their successes in the program as well as discuss the challenges they may face inside and outside of the classroom. Project LIVE strives to give those with special needs the opportunities to share their unique talents and personalities with the world and we look forward to getting to know this phenomenal group of students. -- More about Project LIVE: Project LIVE: Lifelong Independence and Vocation Education is designed to meet the extensive transitioning needs of young adults with Special Needs from high school to adulthood. Established in Holmen, Wisconsin in September 2010, Project LIVE is at the forefront of Special Education by utilizing real world experience and exposure within the safety of an educational program. Designed within the School District of Holmen and based out of the Onalaska YMCA, Project LIVE is a classroom without borders. All areas of life ranging from finances, personal wellness, socialization, vocational training to daily living skills are not simply explored, but rather lived on a daily basis. The students also utilize their unique talents to give back to the community in which they live in through various volunteering and fundraising activities. These amazing young adults strive to show how individuals with Special Needs are not only an important part of our community but can be productive citizens for the state of Wisconsin. -- Project LIVEs Facebook Page:
