On Tuesday, May 23, Pathways to Friendship hosted our Northeast Community Inclusion Summit, where over 70 people from faith, recreation, arts and culture, library, and educational community organizations came together to learn about how to better include people with disabilities within their organizations and programs.
A huge thank you to the Lexington Recreation Department for hosting us, to Laurel Rossiter for being our keynote speaker, and to our wonderful panel presenters! It was a wonderful event!
Pathways to Friendship was also at the MASS Conference in Marlborough on May 19 and 20. Meg Gaydos and Rachel Hayward, project staff, had a table where they shared resources to support friendships in community and two presentations were offered by Friends Trainers and self-advocates Jonathan Spiller, Warren Magee, and Luke Ross.
Lastly, the Pathways to Friendship team took part in the Newton High Transition Fair on Wednesday, May 24.
