Current Volunteer Opportunities

Reading Initiative

The Reading Initiative is a volunteer opportunity involving direct engagement with students/clients that have developmental disabilities who are at varying reading levels. For clients who are unable to read, volunteers read to individual or groups of clients. For students/clients with beginning reading skills, volunteers help clients read with one-to-one assistance. For clients with strong reading skills, volunteers listen as clients do the reading themselves. The Reading Initiative allows both experienced and inexperienced volunteers to contribute in a meaningful way. Reading sessions are available throughout each week.

Direct Engagement

Interact and support students and clients with disabilities at our training centers or group homes. Assist and engage clients in a learning environment through health & fitness, vocational training, games, reading, arts & music, learning goals, computer activities and other independent living skills. Chaperone clients on our Community Inclusion field trips.

Group Home Restoration

Assist with minor renovations, landscaping or other projects to improve where our clients live, work and play. Several of our group homes are 40+ years old and in need of some upgrades.

Other Support

Share your talents in music, art, exercise, therapy, dance, cooking, gardening, etc. and create a custom activity or service for our clients or our facilities. Serve on an organizing committee for our fundraising and special events.
