The Volunteer Program assists individuals in increasing their self-sufficiency and assists with developing the skills needed to engage in meaningful community activities.  Individuals will learn additional adaptive skills that will increase and improve social interactions and improve overall life functioning.

 

The Volunteer Program provides adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities with the opportunity to develop, enhance, and exhibit adaptive skills in a community setting. The opportunities for skill development can include socialization, adaptability, self-discipline, independence, self-confidence, sense of belonging, self- advocacy, personal safety, resource allocation, time management, professionalism, problem solving, leadership, and conflict management. This program is offered in community settings, which allows the individuals in the program to gain and enhance skills alongside of volunteers or employees without disabilities. Supports are provided to the individuals in the program to ensure the activities align with their person centered plan; documenting development, performance and satisfaction for the days in attendance.
