Badger Volunteers (BV) hosted its first ever “Ed Social” on March 1 at the School of Education. Ed Socials are a play on the traditional Education Session or Ed Session that is a regular part of the Badger Volunteers program. Ed Sessions and socials provide Badger Volunteers with opportunities to deepen their understanding of community engagement.
The first Ed Social was a collaborative event with RecSports. Coordinator of Competitive Sports Tori Landron helped co-facilitate a session called BV ADAPT. BV ADAPT challenged students to explore their own preconceptions of ability and get first-hand experience with what it’s like to participate in adaptive sports with a disability.
