WE JUST HAVE TO SHARE!
Juna Gjata, a ViStars Alum and Harvard rising senior has produced a podcast in an attempt to answer the question, “how can you change the perceptions that people have of those with disabilities?” Juna’s thoughtful and inquisitive research reveals some provocative thoughts on what actually disables a person – is it the disability or is it the limits we as a society impose on people?
A Little Bit About Us….
ViStars is a non-profit 501(c)3-eligible corporation north of Boston, Massachusetts. The group provides after school empowerment programs for middle and high school teens with visual impairments. Activities include student government, community service, sports and recreation, social media, leadership training, and travel.
Our bimonthly meetings are held at Malden High School, where we plan events, enjoy the camaraderie and support of our friends, and participate in social and empowerment activities.
ViStars runs a weekly Goalball program for any middle/high schooler with a visual impairment in the fall and spring sports seasons. Our team meets on Mondays in Malden starting mid-September. All are welcome to join – check the blog for announcements as to the dates and times.
