A project-based learning activity in which students assess their community's ability to respond to crises and develop ideas for making it more resilient. Students participate in project-based learning over several days as they assess their community's ability to respond to crises that threaten both natural and human systems. Then they develop ideas for redesigning their community to be more resilient.
The Rick Hansen School Program resources are a complete set of resources designed by educators, for educators to support them in teaching students about disability, accessibility and inclusion, thus empowering youth to become difference makers in their schools and communities.
The Rick Hansen School Program is:

- available for FREE to all educators across Canada;
- flexible and aligns with lessons and curriculum that are already being taught in the classroom
Participating teachers and administrators agree that the program makes classrooms and schools more inclusive, decreases bullying, empowers students to create positive change, and raises student awareness of the potential of people with disabilities.
