Name of Engagement
Tom Moran, Director of Empowerment3 - The Center for Physical Activity and Wellness for Underserved Youth
The Overcoming Barriers is designed around the concept of "Empowerment". Our mission is to empower individuals with disabilities, parents, educators/instructors, and community organizations by producing significant changes in each target population's self-efficacy. Each group is empowered by receiving and utilizing the "tools" necessary to participate in, advocate for, and/or facilitate successful health and physical activity programs. The programming, training, and support provided is designed to give each targeted population the skills, knowledge, and appropriate attitudes to achieve success and allow all individuals with disabilities to work towards making significant changes in health, wellness, function, and community integration outcomes.
