Events for Self-Advocates
DREAMS ARE FOR EVERYONE!
Thursday, June 29 10:00 - 11:30 am
Do you have a dream? Having dreams to reach for enriches our lives. Dreams give us purpose and help us get going each day. They are essential to us reaching our full potential. And, the best part is...dreams are for everyone!
The Arc – Jefferson, Clear Creek & Gilpin Counties is proud to host our next LifeAbility Talk: Dreams are for Everyone on Thursday, June 29th, 10:00 – 11:30 am. LifeAbility Talks are interactive discussions designed to strengthen the abilities of self-advocates with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Talks are led by experienced self-advocates, and they cover topics that promote more independent and satisfying lives.
Come and be inspired by guest speaker and self-advocate, Connor Long (actor/advocate/athlete, television news reporter, and Arc’s Self-Advocate of the Year), who has accomplished some amazing dreams in his young life. You’ll get to see a clip of Connor’s latest film, Learning to Drive. After Connor’s speech, The Arc’s David Eaton will keep the audience laughing while leading an interactive talk about dreams--identifying the ones that are right for you, how to pursue your dreams and stay motivated, and good ways to overcome setbacks. We hope that our Talk will leave you inspired to have a lifetime of dreams and achievements!
Please RSVP by Tuesday, June 27th to Valerie at 303-232-1338 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Snacks and water will be served.
