Here's a sample of the cool videos and songs that we've created and posted there:

The questions isn't "Why?", it's "Why NOT?!?!"

Don't let attitudes or fear keep you from living your life to the fullest! Go for it! Hey, why not?

Find the Right Fit for YOU!

Sometimes you have to think outside the box to find the things you really want. Everyone is different, and awesome in their own unique way!

A Lofty Ambition

Don't let anyone stop you from pursing your dreams!

Having a Good Day!

Having a "good day" means different things for different people, but there's no "wrong answer", as long as YOUR good day means doing that things that matter most to YOU!

Ideas about Your Individual Service Plan

When something is "individualized", it means it's created specifically for the person who it's all about. It's like getting an outfit custom-tailored so it fits you perfectly. It's like ordering "a la cart", or "off the menu". If you don't the thing you're looking for, don't just settle. Ask questions. Find out what's possible and choose the things that are important to you!

The Support Intensity Scale ("SIS") is NOT a Test!

The SIS is a set of questions about your day to day life, and what kind of support you need to be successful. The SIS is NOT a test, so you can't get the answers wrong, because it's all about you! Don't be afraid to let the people who are asking your the questions know what you need.

R-Word Busters!

Sticks and stones and NAMES HURT, TOO!

I Will Hold My Head Up High, and Keep It There Everyday

An awesome song about being proud, with lyrics by Leadership Series graduate, Amy E.

I'm the Boss of Me

Thanks to our friend and RI Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Musician, Mark Cutler, for sharing his many gifts to help us write the lyrics to this cool song about being the boss!
