Inclusive Education and Outreach

IN!'s Education and Outreach Program was launched through the support of the Harvey Family Foundation.


Thanks to the funding provided by the Harvey Family Foundation, in the spring of 2018, IN! implemented an Education and Outreach Program. The program engages with prospective students with intellectual disabilities and their families to learn about the college options in Colorado. It shares what the needed steps are to prepare for college that include academic preparation, self-advocacy and social independence. Staff and volunteers work collaboratively with K-12 educators and administrators to help academically prepare prospective students for the rigors and structure of secondary education.   

Looking to get information about higher education out to individuals with disabilities in your community? Whether it's a resource fair, conference presentation, parent night session, panel discussion, newsletter listing, or something else, we're happy to chat.

"This is an exciting time as awareness has grown so has the "why not's" for all students to go to college.  We are grateful for this partnership with the Harvey Family Foundation and for their belief that every individual is valued for their ability, not their disability. Their support will provide life-changing opportunities for young adults with intellectual disabilities in Colorado."
