Inclusive Volunteering builds friendships and community connections.
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.
Some of our community sites currently include:
Charitable Union, Habitat ReStore, South Michigan Food Bank, Sprout, and more!
