What is the Inclusion Ambassador Training?
The Inclusion Ambassador Training provides an introduction to best practices in inclusive recreation.
The 3-hour, six-unit training is available for free to all Certified Inclusivity Assessors (CIA) and a CIA can register as many people as they want in the training.
The training uses animated cartoons, games, social media, assignments, and other fun activities to increase awareness of best practices in inclusion in parks and recreation settings.
In the Inclusion Ambassador Training, participants receive badges for completing activities and lessons. We encourage participants to proudly display these badges on social media sites!
At the end of the 3-hour online training, participants receive a certificate of completion and become a Certified Inclusion Ambassador.
The training is fun, interactive, and educational. Participants learn how to include people of all abilities in recreation, parks, camps, and other aspects of life.
