Join our growing community!

Created around the interests of our learners, Reach Every Voice group Institutes are designed to give students who type, spell, or point to communicate an engaging and enriching environment that provides a meaningful learning experience beyond what is available in any outside-of-school program.

 

Still making choices? Still on stencils? Still at single word responses?

 

Don't let that deter you.

Our lessons are scaffolded to let EVERY voice join in the conversation.

We believe that all individuals can benefit from rich conversation

at many different levels.

Each time we meet, students nominate lesson topics for upcoming sessions and vote for their preferences. Based on student input, we create groups for the lesson and conversation pairings. These flexible, ever-changing student groupings allow us to offer more opportunities for self-directed learning, building friendships, and enjoying games of choice.

 

We also encourage purposefully-paired mentor relationships to allow students who are new to REV or to using the boards to benefit from the experience of others.

We believe learning from others is important.

We value the experiences and advice others can provide. Over the years, we've welcomed guest presenters with wide-ranging expertise to share their knowledge and wisdom with us at Institute.

 But perhaps the best part of Institute is the community we've built.

 

The relationships our students create - mentors, mentees, learners, teachers, friends - are what they rave about. They give each other advice; make weekend plans; have serious political debates; jab, spar, and throw shade in battles of wit and humor.

 

And they love welcoming newcomers to their ranks.
