I Am...Kit -- Fostering Inclusion, Belonging
L'Arche knows the transformative impact of relationships with people with intellectual disabilities. Its educational kits open students to ourshared humanity.
I am nominating this project because I have been using the "I Am" Kit for the last year and it is very effective with young people. It not only helps youth tap into their innate capacity for empathy, it also helps young people recognize the potential for vulnerability to be the bridge that links us as human beings. Even the most guarded of students seem softened by the video, exercises and reflection that come out of the "I Am" kit. A great tool!
