OUR MISSION: The goal of Disability Inclusion Guild (DIG) is to break social barriers for people with disabilities. We educate communities and create a culture in which people with disabilities are just people.
Methods: Gotta DIG It community programs use mindfulness, experiential learning, and human interaction to teach inclusion practices. Our goal is to reach children, parents, teachers, employers, employees, and, in turn, the community as a whole. By embracing the qualities that unify us, we can promote inclusion to the point that it's effortless.
Mindfulness: We incorporate mindfulness or awareness practices in our programs to create a sense of grounding and connectedness, as well as to promote mental health awareness.
Empathy: Out with SYMPATHY, in with EMPATHY! There is no need for pity in understanding people with disabilities. In order to grasp their daily challenges, it helps to experience them first hand. Using experiential sensory-based techniques and inclusive social interaction, GOTTA DIG IT programs can open minds and make them more empathetic.
Goals: We need to find common ground as well as a sense of purpose. We strive to abolish fear of and awkwardness toward people with disabilities. It's time to empower our society to find compassion and spread the Disability Inclusion Movement within our communities to find comfort together.
Walk With Us: Ever stepped in the shoes of someone who cannot walk? We can take you on a brief stroll through a world of Inclusion. Who wouldn’t DIG a world like that!
