JCC Association has awarded mini-grants to JCCs to create healthful inclusion programs for people with intellectual disabilities or to enhance existing programs that have already proven effective. Outcomes from these activities will be incorporated into future professional development training for JCCs. Our inclusion model offers participants of every ability the same opportunities and choices to participate in communal life. This allows everyone to develop self-confidence, independence, and important life skills. The community’s diversity becomes a wellspring of cohesion and strength.
