We are very pleased to announce that funding for the No Limits Program at UC Berkeley (now known as the Accessible Wellness and Empowerment Program (AWE), has been renewed through 2020!
We are very excited for the UC Berkeley students to have this program back and we will keep you updated with more details as we move into 2020!
Beginning in 2015, we established the No Limits Program at the Recreational Sports Facility (RSF) at UC Berkeley with funding from the Wellness Fund. This program provided increased access to RecSports facilities, equipment, and unlimited one-on-one training at no extra cost for students with mobility, vision, hearing, or invisible disabilities. The No Limits Program consisted of:
RSF 101- a 45 minute session introduction which includes:
A personal tour of the facility and the No Limits room
Information about how different equipment works and how to use it
An overview of the programs that we have to offer
One-on-one sessions with students who have disabilities. These sessions took place in the No Limits room at the RSF which is home to specialized equipment specifically geared towards people with neurological conditions.
One-on-one swimming sessions. These sessions took place at one of the beautiful outdoor pools on campus and included water exercises or simply getting a student more comfortable with being in the water
Teaching and training the athletic trainers on staff on how to work with students with a variety of disabilities to provide high quality exercise
Developing and expanding current and future programs for students with disabilities
Providing expertise to administrators and staff for how to best address the needs of students with disabilities
