Introduction to Alliance for Inclusion Advancement-Hawai‘i (AIA-HI) Toolkit
In August 2008, representatives of the AIA-HI LINCs (Local Inclusion Network Collaboratives—defined in the Toolkit) met to discuss methods to sustain LINC projects after AIA-HI’s conclusion in September 2008. Development of the Toolkit was suggested and recommended for approval at this meeting.
The goal of the Toolkit is to share helpful information with organizations and individuals interested in working with people with disabilities as volunteers in community service. The Toolkit shares Tools AIA-HI used to facilitate its capacity-building mission to enhance volunteer opportunities for individuals with disabilities, age 14 and older.
Our hope is this Toolkit will serve as a guide for the Hawai‘i LINCs as they continue their community endeavors, and for other programs and organizations interested in developing sustainable service inclusion activities, capacity building efforts towards disability inclusion, and in creating a welcoming environment for everyone.
