Last year I wrote about how visiting the Texas School for the Blind and the Visually Impaired impacted our children. They started realizing how the way our city was laid out affected people who couldn't see. This change in their world will happen whenever they are introduced to diversity.
One of the many benefits of traveling by bus is that you meet different people. Children are submerged in the city culture all day long. Then, through guided field trips we make sure to build a bridge between "us" and "them". That's what this city is about!
Join us on our Diversity week where we'll visit places such as: Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, the George Washington Carver Museum, The African American Heritage Center, the Central Texas Food Bank, Urban Roots Farm, Mexican American Cultural Center, Mexic-arte Museum among others.
Learning about diversity can start with very small things. You could serve ethnic foods once in a while and talk about where they come from. There are also tons of books that teach about different cultures. Of course if it's a possibility, meet people from all backgrounds!
