Disability Awareness through Sport (UC Berkeley)

Team Members: Mickey Kay

School: UC Berkeley

The Disability Awareness Through Sport (DATS) project partners UC Berkeley and the Bay Area Outreach & Recreation Program (BORP) in a collaborative effort to increase disability awareness and student service on the Cal campus and in the surrounding Berkeley community. These two organizations will work together to implement a course in which students will use the sport of wheelchair basketball as a framework for exploring issues of disability awareness, advocacy, and outreach. In addition to learning how to play wheelchair basketball, students will also work in close collaboration with BORP as mentors, coaches, and community organizers.
