The National Ability Center, in collaboration with the Departamento de Educación Especial for the State of Quintana Roo, Mexico, and UCP Wheels for Humanity in the United States conducted a multi-phased sports exchange for youth with disabilities with the goal of establishing sustainable sports programs that target youth with physical and developmental disabilities in Mexico. The 2014 program, Empowering Communities and Expanding Awareness, sent ten American multi-sport disability skills trainers to Mexico to conduct two five-day training programs for coaches and youth with disabilities. Ten multi-sport disability coaches from Mexico who were trained during the first phase of the exchange travelled to Park City, Utah for a program to receive further training in disability sport skills.
