Inclusive Volunteering builds community connections.
Volunteer Program: The Volunteer Program assists individuals in increasing their self-sufficiency by developing the skills by engaging in community experiences. Individuals will learn additional adaptive skills that will increase social interactions and improve overall life functioning. The Volunteer Program provides adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD) 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 the community, which allows the individual to gain and enhance skills alongside others without disabilities. Support is provided to the individual to ensure training and skill-development align with the Person-Centered Plan; documenting development, performance, and satisfaction for the days in attendance.
