Founder Connor Archer continues to fulfill one of his missions of the Courageous Steps Project: educating people about the challenges of Autism, along with other challenges in the community. "It has been great to be able to continue educating those about the challenges of Autism, as well as other challenges" said Connor Archer in a brief statement recently.
Archer continued his speaking engagements recently at the Brewer Community School where he spoke to the Brewer School Department's Special Education staff on Thursday June 16th, consisting of staff from the lower levels all the way up through senior year of high school. There were some even familiar faces to Connor that used to work with him.
The founder focused on sharing his story first, which lead to the creation of Courageous Steps. Connor also invited his mom to share her 24 years of experience as an educator who has experienced the challenges of Autism, as well as other challenges.
Connor hopes to continue these speaking engagements this summer, as he will continue to build that part of the project up. Soon Connor, will be having a fee for those speaking engagements. This will help with funding of materials for the Courageous Steps Project, along with other loose end items that help the project run successfully. "This was an important thing for me to think about, but I think having that money go towards that, is the best option, as it's not a donation" said Archer.
