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. works with local and national disability groups to connect these groups with their communities, and to facilitate inspiration amongst one another. Our mission is to work together with these groups to create a community in which everyone's value is recognized.
Our board is seeking new, additional board members to support and collaborate on current and future projects to meet the organization's 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 two programs and two events, respectively, 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 in Motion- a performance dance program for teens and adults with disabilities.
- Race4Respect 5K & 1K Kids Dash for Down Syndrome Awareness in DC
- Journey to Inspire- a gala for teens creating change
To best execute these programs and events, Devenio, Inc. operates using an "early stage" mindset, and works with individuals with a variety of backgrounds to drive the strategic plan and mission of the organization. Board meetings are held every month predominantly via teleconference, or in an office space in Bethesda.
We are looking for individuals interested in our mission, and who would help contribute to our programs and initiatives. Valuable skillsets in a candidate include experience in: marketing, accounting, education (we work with middle and high schools), grant writing, and social media/e-communication specialist. We are also interested in individuals who think outside the box. If you are interested in learning more, please visit www.devenio.org and/or email email@example.com.
