SOAR Fox Cities offers a Community Education Program!

Our staff are passionate about our mission and working to create inclusive communities where all people can be actively involved and have opportunities to maximize their potential. We offer presentations for both youth and adults on disability-related topics, and can customize material to meet the specific needs and interests of your group! Some of our standard presentations include-

  • Kids on the Block: Life-sized puppet performances promoting disability/diversity awareness and educational conversations with elementary school-aged children.
  • Hands-On DisABILITY Awareness: Educational conversations and interactive activities developing empathy and understanding for peers with differing abilities in middle and high school-aged youth.
  • General DisABILITY Awareness: Presentations designed to refute stereotypes and help adults better understand people with disabilities.
  • Corporation Presentations: Presentations that provide businesses with knowledge, tools, and skills to better serve customers with disabilities.
  • Employment First Presentations: Presentations that highlight the benefits of hiring people with differing abilities and answer questions about creating diverse workforces.
  • First Responder Presentations: Presentations that teach first responders how to recognize characteristics of intellectual and developmental disabilities and learn strategies for better assisting people with disabilities in emergencies.
  • SOAR 101: An overview of SOAR Fox Cities including our history, mission, programs, and services to learn how we ‘Empower People with Differing Abilities’!

We also recently launched a NEW program around Traumatic Brain Injury and offer two presentations on the topic:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury 101: Presentations about Traumatic Brain Injuries and their causes, symptoms, and impacts.
  • Traumatic Brain Injury Accommodations: Presentations that teach techniques for working with and identifying survivors of Traumatic Brain Injuries, as well as strategies and accommodations to help them be successful!

We would love the opportunity to come and speak at your next event, meeting, or gathering and share our story with you!
