We want to hear about what YOU learned from the projectABLE experience. Why?
- Your feedback can help us continue to improve the workshops
- You can inspire future students to participate in the program
- You can chat with other participants about what you learned
- It’s great to have your thoughts and ideas published online to show future employers how engaged you are with your community
What sort of things should you write about:
- What was the most important thing you learned from the workshop?
- What preconceived ideas you had were changed by attending a workshop?
- What are you going to do next to help improve the lives of people with disability in the community?
- Did the workshops give you new ideas about your career aspirations?

The projectABLE half day workshops have been hitting the local press this week, with coverage in the Macarthur Chronicle and the Northern District Times. It’s wonderful that local communities are learning about the program, not only so they know what students are achieving in the workshops, but also to highlight the great work our affiliate organisations are doing in the community.
We got great media in 2011 as well, featuring our 2011 ambassadors, Holly, Shayama and Kyrillos. These exceptional students featured in the St George and Sutherland Shire Leader, The Hills Shire Times and The Liverpool Leader, among others.
This year, everyone has the opportunity to be an ambassador for the rights and dignity of others, by contributing to our online challenge, is your community accessible? We’re asking students to discover positive and negative examples of accessibility and inclusion in their school, community, home and in the media. Learn more and then share your experience!
