Sharing with other libraries, Say Yes to Community Inclusion Workshop

Good morning,

Are you looking for a free motivational speaker?  Would you like to host a workshop to invite fitness instructors and recreation stakeholders to the  Rest and Relaxation Spot which is THE LIBRARY? We hosted the Say Yes to Community Inclusion workshop at our library.  Please view our story by visiting the following page




Do you work at a community centre, fitness club, or recreational facility that promotes physical activity? Are you a recreation provider or community organization that understands the value of including individuals of all abilities, but who does not know where to begin? Are you interested in having an inspirational and dynamic speaker participate at your conference or event to offer free, practical, cost effective advice in helping you make your programs more inclusive? If the answer is Yes to any of these questions, All Abilities Welcome is a good place to start.

All Abilities Welcome (AAW) is an initiative of the Active Living Alliance for Canadians with a Disability. It is aimed at promoting greater inclusion of Canadians with a disability in community physical activity programming. By connecting community facilities and people with a disability, we hope to build awareness that anyone can be physically active; to share the simple strategies that can make this a reality; and to promote a culture of inclusion in Canada.

An All Abilities Welcome presentation can:

·       Take the form of a conference presentation or keynote address, a standalone event, a workshop, or a staff training opportunity for community recreation providers;
·       Introduce community recreation program staff to some basic approaches and creative steps that will help in making their programs more inclusive;
·       Offer hands-on, practical, cost effective tips to community service providers on how to modify community recreation programs to include persons with a disability;
·       Engage and empower recreation practitioners through a compelling presentation from a speaker whose personal or professional experience illustrates how active living is truly for everyone!

Call or email us today or visit our website to find out more about All Abilities Welcome or to book us for a FREE presentation at your conference, event or facility.

Active living is for everyone. Help us spread the message!
