Integrate for Good empowers students and adults of all abilities to share their talent through inclusive volunteerism, community leadership and meaningful employment.
From a very early age, individuals with disabilities are called “special,” and quickly become the recipients of assistance. Those living with disabilities, and just as importantly the larger community are presented with an understanding of people with disabilities as recipients of service from others, not as capable providers of service.
The relationship is imbalanced, lacking reciprocity. Talents go untapped, organizations miss out on benefits offered by potential volunteers, and a charity-based mindset depicting individuals with disabilities as “consumers of service” is perpetuated.
In July of 2017, we launched Integrate for Good to challenge that charity-based mindset by expanding opportunities for people with disabilities to contribute their time and talent for the purpose of strengthening local communities. In just five years, we've already had a greater impact than we could have ever imagined...
