Michigan's Third Annual Disability/Inclusion Week
The Michigan Community Service Commission (MCSC) is committed to encouraging all Michigan residents to engage in service. Their vision is a state where all residents meet community needs and find personal fulfillment through service and volunteerism.
The Third Annual Disability/Inclusion Week will be celebrated by the MCSC to help empower national service programs, volunteer organizations, mentoring programs, and others to make service a part of the lives of individuals with disabilities, and to give tools and resources for programs looking to become more inclusive in their daily service. Mark your calendars to participate October 15 through October 19!
This week-long effort will raise awareness about disability and inclusion while engaging programs and organizations in the various efforts of the MCSC and connecting them with valuable tools and resources to help serve and connect with those with disabilities.
We'll be sharing resources, great stories, quotes, and other inclusive service information across various platforms. Be sure to check us out via:
