Tracks at the Summit
No Barriers programs offer many experiences that serve a variety of populations. At the No Barriers Summit we invite all individuals to participate and learn hands-on what it means to live a No Barriers Life. To help cultivate community-building experiences within the Summit, we have four targeted tracks available to educators, veterans, women and youth coming as a group or individually. Join individuals with similar backgrounds, passions, challenges and communities by opting to participate in one of the below tracks.
You are welcome to select a track in the registration process. If you don’t fall into a track category, don’t fret, the General Summit Pass is for you! You can register for tracks on the Summit registration page.
No Barriers Warriors Track
Join active-duty military and veterans of all abilities and ages in the No Barriers Warriors Track. This track includes a Friday dinner program where No Barriers Warriors alum, future participants, track family members, supporters and sponsors gather to celebrate the work of our Warriors program. In addition, you’ll have veterans-only activity options for your Friday Elective Activity. On other days of the Summit you will get to be with those you attended the Summit with or be integrated into the general summit experiences.
Thank you to CoBank and Raytheon for sponsoring the Warriors Track.
No Barriers Women Track
We’re excited to kick-off No Barriers Women with a female-focused experiential track at the 2017 Summit. The No Barriers Women Track includes a Thursday afternoon one-hour Women’s Gathering, Friday dinner and Saturday Happy Hour. In addition, you’ll have a set of exclusive female-only activities (ranging from outdoor recreation to educational panels) to choose from for your Friday Elective Activity. No Barriers Women is open to women (aged 21 or older) of all races, experiences, and places in their lives who come together, creating a community filled with individuals who are seeking fulfillment, purpose and life.
Thank you to Coors Light for sponsoring the Women’s Track
No Barriers Youth Track
The No Barriers Youth Track is an opportunity to meet other young people at the Summit and participate in a Friday activity with other young people. The youth track is for people aged 10-18 years old. Participants of this track will meet a track leader on Friday morning and will go to activities as a group. The track will have a leader from 8:30am-1:00pm on Friday. At that point track participants will be integrated back into the general summit experience.
Do you participate in, teach, coach or supervise a school group? Maybe it’s a leadership club, technology group or outdoor education club. Bring your youth group to the Summit for a once-in-a-lifetime deep dive into the No Barriers Life. There are opportunities for STEM, speaker programming and outdoor recreation. Contact Amy.Westby@NoBarriersUSA.org if you would like to bring a group to the Summit.
No Barriers Educators Track
Join fellow educators and elevate your Summit experience as you learn how to integrate the No Barriers Life into your classroom and programming. This professional development opportunity includes targeted activities along with a dinner for educators on Friday evening. Throughout this track, educators will collaborate with one another, participate in Summit activities and events, and engage in workshops focused on how to implement No Barriers curriculum, projects, and programs. Appropriate for educators who teach students of all backgrounds and abilities, facilitate experiential learning, or who want to learn more about how to be inclusive and innovative in the classroom.
