Rick Hansen Ambassador Program under Canadian Association of the Deaf and Manitoba Deaf Association 2016

Rick Hansen Ambassador Program and CAD-ASC & MDA host

Are you interested in sharing your personal story of overcoming challenges and achieving your goals at events in Winnipeg and across Manitoba?

We are seeking individuals who are Deaf to participate in an upcoming training session and join the Rick Hansen Ambassador Program as a volunteer Ambassador.  After participating in a special training session, you will have opportunities to present at schools and organizations in your community to raise awareness of accessibility and inclusion, with events coordinated and supported by the team at the Rick Hansen Foundation.  In addition, you’ll become part of an existing team of over 100 individuals with diverse backgrounds from the disability, Deaf and hard of hearing communities in Manitoba and all across Canada.

The free training session will take place over 2 days (Saturday & Sunday) in June 2016 in Winnipeg, MB.  The training will cover sharing messaging around accessibility and inclusion to school-age and adult audiences as well as providing an opportunity to become more comfortable with sharing your story and presenting to a variety of audiences.

Ambassadors receive an honorarium for attending the training + delivering 2 presentations.

Registration is limited!  To find out more or to register your interest, please email Rachel Finlay – Program Coordinator, Rick Hansen Ambassador Program at the Rick Hansen Foundation at rfinlay@rickhansen.com or Doug Momotiuk at dougmomotiuk@yahoo.com
