"I have just gotten up from the dinner table after having one of the most stimulating discussions of the year, led by none other than our son. He dominated our dinner conversation with all that he learned today at the Awareness Day events. We talked about the first amendment and the rights that it entailed, about the Patriot Act, disabilities, and drugs. He was excited about all that he learned today, and it was exciting for all of us to learn from him. We had a great discussion.

Hats off to you and the staff at KRHS who arranged a whole day of thinking outside the box!" (KRHS parent 2005)

Programming

Awareness UNlimited works with schools, corporations, businesses, civic organizations, and other groups to develop the awareness and diversity programming most appropriate for the situation. We meet with prospective clients to discuss interest in/need for types of programming and topics/issues then develop programming specifically designed for the client. We offer suggestions and share templates for programming that has been successful in the past but always keep the unique needs and interests of each client in mind. We can create workshops, seminars, day-long progams, assemblies, interactive programming, one-time events or on-going programming with speakers and other presenters sharing their skills and talents to suit a client's needs. Awareness UNlimited is also available to plan, facilitate, and produce programs, activities, and events...
