JOIN IN ON THE FUN!
Devenio, inc. inspires community building through partnerships that provide lifelong opportunities for people with Down syndrome and other developmental disabilities. We create and facilitate collaborative projects, programs and events directed at education, awareness and increasing availability of experiences.
By leveraging resources and working together, we aim to benefit the disability community as well as the greater communities in which we live.
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.
Devenio Dance provides rigorous training to dancers age 14 to adult with cognitive and developmental disabilities, empowering them with real opportunities to perform independently. Regular, meaningful creative work—the building of a repertoire—provides purpose and community for its dancers and community partners. Performances showcase and share dancers’ joy and passion, and create awareness of the abilities and possibilities of people with special needs.
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.
