Any great and inspiring leader or organization that ever existed set out to do something completely unrealistic. ATRA’s mission is to “Empower Recreational Therapists” and our vision is “A world where every person has access to Recreational Therapy”. What do you think? Are those unrealistic goals? Are those idealistic dreams that we will never accomplish? As we end International Recreational Therapy month, I challenge you to think about how you as the ATRA leadership contribute to ATRA’s mission and vision. How can you help reach these goals? Without each one of us, ATRA and the recreational therapy profession would not be moving forward. Thank you for your time and commitment to this organization, and to helping ATRA meet the needs of our profession. Let’s continue to work to empower our colleagues and create a world where recreational therapy is accessible to all.
Your partner in Recreational Therapy,
Dawn DeVries, ATRA President
