I agree to behave in an appropriate and professional manner at every in-person or online class. I agree to arrive on time and prepared for each class. I agree to respect others and their ideas. I agree to respect and care for all equipment required for the class. I know that Barrier-Free has a zero-tolerance policy for drugs, violent behavior, sexual/physical harassment, and bullying (including cyberbullying). If I participate in any of these specific kinds of behavior, no warnings (verbal and/or written) will be given. I will be simply dismissed from the program immediately and will receive no refund. I understand that I am expected to follow all of the agreements listed above. If I do not, I will first be given a verbal warning. If there is a violation again, I will then have a written warning.

I agree to be photographed and have my name shared via Barrier-Free's website and social media. Above all, I will always do my best and have fun!
Barrier-Free has helped with my job and leadership in the workforce. I have been able to take on alot more leadership roles in other aspects of my life and job. Barrier-Free has helped to continue my confidence and friendships. - Mike Eaton, Barrier-Free actor and self-advocate
