REI Tour Best Practices from the Field: Greensboro, NC

This post was contributed by Michael Roush, National Program Director for the National Disability Institute and “Chief Financial Officer” of his family.

Having been bitten by the video bug, I’ve been really starting to get into it. And I found that it’s easy to ask others to participate. In fact… fun! So it was a pleasure to put together more Best Practices from The Real Economic Impact Tour as we travel across the country.

Next stop, Greensboro, NC! There, we teamed up with the IDA and Asset Building Collaborative of NC and EITC Carolinas to implement the Building Assets, Promoting Choice and Community Participation for People With Disabilities curriculum — and also introduced it to our new partner, Beyond Academics.

Beyond Academics is a progressive four year post-secondary education program for adults with intellectual disabilities, in partnership with The University of NC at Greensboro. Welcome Beyond Academics!
