Include Me Program

The “Include Me” program was established by Walter and Jackie Jagodzinski in honor of their daughter Andrea. The purpose of this program is to educate young children, their educators, and caretakers about disabilities awareness, bullying prevention, and inclusion through the art of puppetry.  Our goal is positive inclusion for all children, with and without disabilities.
