Yes I Can Social Inclusion for Pepsi Refresh Award
The YES I CAN Social Inclusion Program could win a Pepsi Refresh Award… but we need your vote!!
Since the Yes I Can (YIC) program was started in the William S. Hart Union School District in Santa Clarita nearly a decade ago, Brett Lieberman and Lisa Lamedmen have brought together HUNDREDS of students with and without disabilities to get to know one another, learn together, and share their love of music. Mentors become friends with students with autism, Asperger Syndrome, and other conditions who they would not have had the chance to know without YIC.
Students with Autism created the concept for the Summer Meltdown autism awareness event after being bullied by their peers. Everyone benefits from the students’ shared efforts to put on the exciting day-long musical event for thousands of their peers. This the only autism awareness concert in California produced by youth!
PLEASE VOTE for YES I CAN’s Summer Meltdown in the Pepsi Refresh contest and help these deserving students and their dedicated teachers realize a dream of the best Meltdown yet- together.
