    "I think interactive experiential learning is a key way of learning. It is fun, gets the mind and body involved in the principles being taught and creates a team environment that overcomes typical classroom barriers like restlessness, titles, etc."

    How the program works

    On the day of the event, a professional facilitator will provide a brief orientation session and clearly lay out how the Wheelchairs For Charity works. Each team will represent a standalone business unit, and be tasked with building and testing a wheelchair for charity.

    To earn supplies for their wheelchairs, participants will need to complete challenges that help teach them about different types of impairments and disabilities. They might need to untangle a rope while visually impaired, or put together a jigsaw puzzle without the use of their hands.

    Whatever the challenge, your facilitator will highlight teachable moments and relate them directly to the experience of your team. And at the end of the session, your team will donate all the wheelchairs to the local charity of your choice.

    • Full-service Wheelchairs For Charity event package

    • On-site professional facilitator and friendly event hosts
