BUILDING A COMMUNITY IN WHICH EVERYONE'S VALUE IS RECOGNIZED
WHAT IS DEVENIO CLUB?
The purpose of Devenio Club is to expand the jOURney to inspire teen gala’s inspiration to students throughout the school year. Devenio staff along with partners from Charity Connect works with the students to support the understanding and promotion of advocacy as well as inclusion specifically of individuals with intellectual and physical differences and generally of any differences. Clubs learn about and support Devenio’s programs and events such as Devenio Soccer, Devenio Dance, Race4Respect™, and the jOURney to inspire, teen gala.
