disAbilities Awareness Challenge
The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America is to provide an educational program for youth to build character, to train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and to develop personal fitness.
The mission of the disAbilities Awareness Challenge is to instill in participants knowledge and sensitivity to various types of disabilities that impact the human race.
The vehicle to instill that knowledge and sensitivity is a collection of experience based exercises designed to simulate, as closely as possible, some of the challenges to everyday living created by various disabilities.
The simulations are presented in the form of activities typically encountered by Scouts in unit, school and community settings.
