Scalzi Originals Foundation, since 2015
Build ecosystems to strengthen and sustain community health. For Youth, Adults, & Senior Citizens.
The Scalzi Originals Foundation is at the crossroads of political science and special education. Its mission is to dynamically strengthen community and individuals through the advent of cognitive, physical, and encouraging leadership in the community support; personalizing implementation of new enterprising ideas, supports and accommodations according to the relevant needs and concerns of families, individuals, and entire communities.
Social enterprising through 1:1 & project-based work, the foundation is scaling its network and pathways of empowerment for those it serves:
Youth, adults, and senior centers who are 'typical' and with special needs, such as executive function challenges, including attentional deficits and behavioral concerns, those on the autism spectrum, with Downs Syndrome, and Intellectual Disabilities.
Coach Bill directs the focus and the instructional approach, the creation of programs, and the innovative push to supply the needs of local communities in practical ways that create an alternative to traditional programs offered.
In addition, the revitalization of community areas is of special interest. Stamford, Ct.'s Scalzi Skateboard Park was revitalized to be an increasingly family-friendly environment through the efforts of the foundation, and an additional focus in this regard is now with a park in San Juan, Puerto Rico's municipality of Santurce. The building of a garden, fishing area, and skateboard park is the goal.
The foundation works in Fairfield County, Ct., Westchester County, NY, Manhattan, NYC.
