A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:

“[IncluCity] was a place of acceptance and honestly I was just being me… I felt accepted and I could freely be who I am,” recounts Isaiah, a 17-year-old junior who attended the camp in January. Since returning from IncluCity, Isaiah has made an intentional effort to be more welcoming to new students and those sitting alone at lunch. “[IncluCity] has truly tremendously affected me by allowing me to be open and accepting to other people around me who I’m not usually comfortable with, but now I’m able to see a different perspective of people,” he added. “After Inclusive Communities, I was brought into a light.”

Isaiah was one of two students selected to speak about his camp experience at the 2018 Humanitarian Brunch in April to a crowd of over 400 people. Although he was anxious at first, being told by his sister and other adults that he inspired them was an impactful and prideful moment. Isaiah has a special message to share with the IC staff and volunteers: “Thank you for believing in me and endowing me with this opportunity to allow my voice to be heard from a lot of people and to be that role model to some people.”
