The Fiesta Especial® Royal Court leadership and life skills development program provides a unique, fun and exciting environment for individuals to work on communication, socialization, leadership, self-advocating, problem solving and planning skill sets. It is a seven month program that begins in September and runs through the end of April.

 

The Fiesta Especial® Royal Court program offers once-in-a-lifetime experiences, life changing moments, self-discovery, skill strengthening and development, new friends, community awareness and more all tied up with a tremendous celebration. Each participant becomes a part of a community that distinguishes achievements, recognizes diversity and provides a platform for giving back and contributing to the local community which supports our program participant’s day in and day out.

Being a member of the Fiesta Especial® Royal Court provides each participant with a unique opportunity to 1) participate in a program that develops leadership and life skills, 2) be in a position of leadership and role modeling to his peers, 3) interact with dignitaries,  4) participate in TV interviews,  and 5) visit schools and organizations to increase awareness for individuals with disabilities. 

The first half of the Fiesta Especial® Leadership and Life Skills development program is around campaigning. The Campaign Session kicks off with a workshop and provides supports to each program participant as it teaches the skill sets of Setting Goals, Developing a Plan, Building a Team, Asking for Support, Identifying Networks, Communicating a Clear message, etc.

Each participant’s campaign enables them to put into practice the lessons reviewed in the workshop. 100% of the funds raised through each person’s campaign go to help programs and services for individuals with disabilities. 40% of each campaign goes to the nonprofit of the program participant’s choice and 60% goes toward providing the Fiesta Especial® Celebration Day program for special education and disability programs at no cost to the attendees, their families, schools or programs.

A Note From Jakob Curnutt

Hi, I'm Jakob Curnutt and I'm campaigning for Fiesta Especial King 2019! My campaign runs from September 8th through December 7th. Your vote of support will help me have the opportunity to demonstrate how individuals with disabilities hold positions of leadership and contribute to the San Antonio community. Each one of your dollars brings me closer to my goal of KING!!! I have selected The Down Syndrome Association of South Texas to benefit from 40% of my Fiesta Especial Campaign. The DSASTX provides opportunities for families to foster friendships and offer mutual support through Parent Information Meetings, community-based social activities, special events, and educational programs. Their ultimate goal is to promote awareness and inclusion in the community. The other 60% will go to help underwrite the costs of special education classes in and around San Antonio to attend Fiesta Especial® Celebration Day, a one-day community instruction program during Fiesta®. 100% of each donation goes to help individuals with disabilities in our community.
