Congratulations to the Yawgoo Valley Snow Sports School!
We have received a 2014 "Access for all Abilities" mini grant from the Paul V. Sherlock Center on Disabilities at Rhode Island College. Yawgoo Valley Snow Sports School will use the grant to provide training for ten adaptive snow sports instructors trained by the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA). These instructors will be available for PRIVATE lessons for individuals with cognitive and developmental disabilities. Our goal is to provide a fun and recreational activity for people with disabilities to enjoy with the general public.
