In "Faithful Journeys," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Pen and paper or laptop computer

Preparation for Activity

  • Complete the accessibility audit (Activity 6).

Description of Activity

An accessibility audit will be truly useful and compelling to participants if the audit results are shared with congregational leaders — the adults who have the power to make changes that would increase the congregation's level of accessibility. After doing the accessibility audit, participants can gather up the sticky notes that marked accessibility efforts and deficits, and review these and their notebook comments to prepare a report for the congregation's board of trustees. This could be a written report you create, based on information the children gathered, or an oral report presented by the children to an adult committee.

Participants might also do a project to make the congregation more accessible, such as creating a sign to direct people who need one to an assistive listening device.

Including All Participants

Shy members of the group may be happier with the role of writing down the audit results. More outgoing participants may seek the opportunity to speak in public. Affirm the value of each child's agency in this project, whatever their contribution.
