Jawonio holds a six-week summer education program where student therapies, education and learning take place on the grounds around the classrooms. This newly designed nature path that will support children with special needs all along the way and will expand classrooms outdoors by making nature more accessible.

Children who rely on durable medical equipment will be walked or pushed in wheelchairs or supported by wheeled support walkers on nature walks, field games, outdoor sing-a-longs or picnics. With the Summer Education Program in a camp or park-like setting, the path can be created to be wheelchair sensitive and walking safe for challenged walkers. Indigenous plantings and foliage will be placed along the path. These therapies and education build self-esteem and skill in a way that is often unavailable to children with disabilities. When the Summer Program is not in session, the nature path will be open to the public.

Help Us Reach Our Goal

Please consider a meaningful tax-deductible donation today to ensure that Jawonio can "Build for Tomorrow" for children and adults with special needs yet to come!
