Our website integrates with platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram in an effort to use modern communication methods and to encourage digital citizenship among our users. These services are provided by their respective companies, and we are not responsible for their adherence to accessibility standards.

Our website also integrates with Google Translate in an effort to improve access for people who come from non-English-speaking backgrounds. Google Translate is a service provided by Google, Inc. and we are not responsible for its content or its adherence to accessibility standards.
