by CAA Supporter - Donna Dubinsky & Len Shustek
We met CAA as a result of my brother Michael's volunteer work there. He started getting more and more involved, so we figured we would check it out. We started by attending a class to get an idea for the type of curriculum that was proposed. I watched a fascinating group put together a storyboard for an animated video. Although it was clear that the capabilities amongst the students varied greatly, they worked nicely as a team to get to a good result.
We've also attended some performances and graduation events, as well as toured the current facility. We became supporters of CAA because we just cannot imagine a better way to support these young adults. They clearly gain a great deal out of the experience at CAA. Not only are they being personally enriched by the program material, they are learning key skills of collaboration and participation. The staff at CAA treats the students with the utmost respect and clearly values their contributions at whatever level. The students show enormous support of each other as well.
We're happy to be part of the CAA community.
