It’s the last day of February and the Fellows are excited to get together on Northeastern’s campus!
Senior Fellow Stephanie started the session with “words of affirmation” created from the letters of each Fellows name.
Today’s training is Understanding Ableism & Building Inclusion with Empowering People for Inclusive Communities (EPIC) Leaders! Our trainers, Jeff and Ryan, defined disabilities and ableism. Next, we discussed mainstreaming versus inclusion. The session ended with “Tips for the Classroom,” so Fellows can put their new knowledge to use in their work with youth!
The next half of the meeting focused on reviewing the grants for the upcoming service year. Massachusetts Promise puts Fellows voice first as the group helps to decide which organizations will receive a Fellow next year.
Look forward to seeing you again in March during our Retreat! 😃
