Engaging Individuals with Disabilities with Joni and Friends

  • Course level: All Levels

About Course

Join Lauren and Ryan with Joni and Friends as they share about how to engage and empower individuals with disabilities on the construction site, at the ReStore, and through faith partnerships. Unlike etiquette for taking tea with the Queen of England, disability etiquette is full of exceptions. There are no hard-and-fast rules. But guidelines, like handrails on a staircase, give people a greater degree of confidence to step forward boldly. Through this session, participants will discuss recommendations and guidelines that empower individuals with disabilities!

  • Learn about the nonprofit Joni and Friends
  • Review the barriers that may exist for an individual with disabilities
