Devenio is a Latin word meaning "to come to, to arrive at, to reach". What better way to describe what we do? Located in the DC Metro area, Devenio, Inc.'s mission is to create enduring opportunities for individuals with cognitive and developmental disabilities to be, and be recognized as contributing members of the community. We work together with organizations and companies to create a community in which everyone's value is recognized.

Our board is seeking new members to support and collaborate on current and future projects to meet our mission of creating enduring opportunities for individuals with cognitive and developmental disabilities to be and be recognized as contributing members of the community. Currently, Devenio, Inc. has three programs and two events that have grown and continue to fulfill the needs of the communities we serve.  

  • Devenio Soccer Club is a soccer program for children and adults with cognitive and developmental disabilities.
  • Devenio Dance- a performance dance program for teens and adults with disabilities.
  • Devenio Club-a high school club for students to learn about advocacy and creating change in their communities through Devenio programs and events for individuals with disabilities
  • Race4Respect 5K & 1K Kids Dash for Down Syndrome Awareness in DC
  • Journey to Inspire- a gala for teens creating change

Devenio operates with a early stage mindset and we work together to drive the strategic plan and mission.

 Skill sets that would be beneficial to our programs and initiatives are:

  • marketing,
  • accounting (for the Treasurer seat),
  • education (we work with elementary, middle and high schools),
  • grant writing,
  • event planning/management
  • social media/e-communication specialist and anyone who is an out of the box thinker.

Board meetings are held every month, predominantly via conference call or held in Bethesda.
