THE ABILITY EXPERIENCE
We were excited to have hosted Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity while they cycle through the south on The Ability Experience!
The Ability Experience was founded in 1977 with a mission to instill a passion for lifelong service in fraternity members while helping to empower people living with disabilities. As the only national fraternity to establish and maintain its own non-profit organization, Pi Kappa Phi takes pride in their service-based leadership training. Through The Ability Experience’s four core values (abilities, teamwork, empathy, and integrity) a community is created where the abilities of all people are recognized and valued.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR
FUTURE PROMISE YOUTH!
Performance artist, Luna Devika, gave an inspirational speech to our Future Promise youth participants at their monthly workshop. Voices were heard, vision boards were created (Luna Devika’s vision board pictured in third slide), and students were able to dream big!
