Diverse Ability Inc. received a one year grant to support their Emerging Me: Middle School Matters, an inclusive, self-discovery, and leadership capacity building program for youth who are in the intermediate grades between elementary and high school. The program will afford youth who do and do not have disabilities opportunities to learn about how their lives intersect, sharing common life experiences and diverse backgrounds. Youth from all backgrounds will engage in personal and group activities that manifest into development of a self-advocacy plan, using person centered planning and practices. The program will take place in Mohave, Maricopa and Yavapai counties.
