One of our Let’s Connect graduates, Ruby, sent us this video filmed with her iPad.

We are asking all of our graduates to share their iPad stories, photos or videos with us to help build a learning community on the RDACL website! More to come…

Congratulations Jay!

On Wednesday October 22, 2014 about 25 members of staff and Jay‘s parents, Greg and Penny, gathered to recognize Jay’s 5 years of service with Stantec.

Jay received letters of recognition form the President and Vice-president of Stantec, a plaque, and a share in the company. Bob Freisen, who gave Jay the opportunity to work at Stantec, commented that “Jay has been a great addition to our work place.”

Thank you Stantec for supporting inclusion in your workplace.

youth week

Youth Has No Age

National Youth Week is May 1 – 7 every year, that is dedicated to the celebration of youth and their active participation in their community.

Whether it is recreation, drama, sport, dance, civic engagement, art, volunteerism or leadership, every day young people are involved in meaningful activities during their discretionary time.

National Youth Week is a time to honour their involvement!

Through activities, such as recreation and art, youth learn five basic life skills, which include social, moral, ethical, physical and cognition competence.

Additionally, through their involvement, young people are meeting the seven developmental needs which they need in order to feel fully engaged in the world around then.

These needs are: self-definition, physical activity, meaningful participation, mastery and achievement, positive interaction with adults and peers, structure and clear limits, and creative expression.

Youth has no age

 

Lets take this moment as an opportunity for our community to celebrate youth.

Shake our groove at Sir Dancelot,

expand our imagination through Next Chapter Book Club, or

create new friendships with Best Buddies.

The options are yours.

Happy National Youth Week!

Smile

The Hidden Power of Smiling

Ron Gutman reviews a raft of studies about smiling, and reveals some surprising results. Did you know your smile can be a predictor of how long you’ll live — and that a simple smile has a measurable effect on your overall well-being?

 

You're awesome

Jack’s Heat

Have an extra 15 minutes today?  Need a smile on your face this Sunday afternoon?  Want to feel inspired?  Then you have to watch this story about Jack and his teammates.  I think it is extremely important to share stories like these, not only because they are heart warming, but also because the more people that recognize what being inclusive looks like the more people will attempt to create these inclusive environments.  Let’s make these stories ordinary instead of extraordinary so that one day everyone can gain the confidence that Jack gained and feel those moments of joy and belonging.

Congratulation to Campus for All Students
