ADVOCACY & INSPIRATION
High School Club
Devenio Club is for high schoolers who are motivated to learn about nonprofits and advocacy, through a commitment to support Devenio’s mission to create a community in which everyone’s value is recognized. In partnership with Charity Connect and Devenio, students learn from individuals with disabilities and use their voices to create change.
5K & 1K Kids Dash
Down Syndrome Awareness
Race4Respect™ 5K & 1K Kids Dash was founded on the belief that if given an opportunity to experience an event together with someone who has Down syndrome, or any other disability, it will help to eliminate negative stereotypes and judgments. These are the people that will one day be more inclined to hire these individuals, help them at the bus stop, chat with them at a coffee shop, or simply believe in their ability before automatically dismissing them as unable. Race4Respect™ offers a USATF sanctioned 5K, 1K Kids Dash and a Virtual Race Option on the most coveted course in Washington, DC. This is a family friendly event with beautiful views!
A TEAM FOR EVERYONE
Teams for youth, teens and adults with disabilities
Devenio Soccer Club serves youth with cognitive and developmental disabilities ages 5- adult, and is built on the foundation of teamwork and is driven by the belief that ALL children, those with and without disabilities, need a place to belong- something to be a part of. These players are given the opportunity to find their niche and to ultimately flourish with practice, competition, and friendship with teammates. Identifying with your peers and teammates is a powerful thing in regards to the development of a child. We all know this, and it is time for children with differences to have that same opportunity.
