This site is designed to empower the whole community to make where we go to school, work, live and play, welcoming for all people.

We all have a part in making our communities more diverse and inclusive places for people with disabilities.

Whether you are a young person with a disability, a parent, a teacher, a business owner, or a member of the community who wants to make a difference, you will find tips and activities to assist you in your journey of promoting inclusion.

Please use this site as a tool to help you change the community, along side Mission Empower, to integrate all youth with disabilities into their community.
