Event Description

Cottage Rehabilitation Hospital’s annual Junior Wheelchair Sports Camp is specifically designed for youth between the ages of 6 and 19 years who use a wheelchair to participate in sports.  Campers have opportunities to learn and practice skills in basketball, rugby, tennis, swimming, racquetball, handcycling and more.  They also experience adventure climbing at the climbing wall, as well as participate in a ropes course, kayaking and SCUBA diving in a pool. A large number of staff and volunteers, many of whom are wheelchair users themselves, facilitate an enriching, dynamic and FUN experience for all!

October is Disability Employment Month

Good afternoon,

October is Disability Employment Month. According to reports the rate of unemployment among persons with disabilities is around 70%. ILRC is working to reduce those numbers by exposing youth to employment opportunities and professionals in the local community .
I am looking for persons from a wide range of fields who would be interested in possibiy presenting to high school students about their jobs.  So far, I have three special education teachers interested in having people present to their classes

Also, if you know of any youth who might like to job shadow employees, please let me know.  I will try to pair them with someone in our community who matches their interests.  

Thank you so much for helping us create new opportunities for youth disabilities in Santa Barbara.
Jacob
