6.5 MILLION AMERICANS HAVE A DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITY
Individuals with disabilities face many challenges in their daily lives: poor physical access to common spaces, additional difficulty in performing everyday tasks and limitations brought on naturally through their disability. But one challenge comes from society: the language and perceptions that others unfairly impose upon them. The Ability Experience works to promote inclusivity and an understanding of a person’s situation, feelings and thoughts. We promote empathy over sympathy, and work to open spaces, increase access and promote inclusivity.
MEANINGFUL EXPERIENCES MATTER
Local organizations that serve people with disabilities are always looking to remodel and grow their facilities. Throughout the year the men of Pi Kappa Phi donate their man power into building and restoring amenities for those organizations. Through Ability Experience programs and grants the men of Pi Kappa Phi are able to leave a lasting impact across the country.LEARN MORE

The Ability Experience offers a ton of summer opportunities to the men of Pi Kappa Phi. Through Journey of Hope, Gear Up Florida, or Build America the message of acceptance and awareness is spread across the country.
