What is PATH to future Endeavours?
Astonished! Core Members are currently completing a strengths, dreams, and, needs questionnaire. This will enable us to determine our role in supporting the vocational dreams of our Core Members.
Under the ‘Path to Future Endeavours’ service area we have had experience by supporting the dreams of a few of the Astonished! Core Members….
Astonished! partnered with public and private organizations to support the employment dream of Core Member Ryan Ross. Ryan lived in Regina and was a resident at Wascana Rehabilitation Centre. Ryan was extremely adept at Facebook, and held the position of Astonished! Facebook Manager. With this position, Ryan was responsible for the content that appears on the Astonished! Facebook page. This opportunity was a meaningful part of the the last years of Ryan’s life.
Astonished! also contracts with the Astonished! Leadership Team, a three-member team made up of young adults with and without disAbilities, to plan monthly events for the Astonished Social Club.
Ryan Ross lived with Duschenne Muscular Dystrophy. As his mobility became more limited he was able to stay in touch with a wider world through his finger and thumb on his computer mouse. We are grateful for the role Ryan played as our first Astonished! Facebook page manager.
