Become a Volunteer
From mentoring to serving food, there are volunteer jobs to match your interests. It takes only a little time to do a lot of good in the community. Accrue community service hours.
We Need Volunteers.
Ways we could use your help.
Our classes are held Tuesday –Thursday from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. The teacher has the lessons planned for our adult students with disabilities, but it would be extremely helpful for the students to have more one-on-one help reviewing and emphasizing what the teacher taught. This would need to be a weekly commitment of 2 hours at least 1 day per week (more would obviously be wonderful). This is a great opportunity for retired educators and/or college students, but there are no special skills required except for patience and understanding.
ANNUAL GALA COMMITTEE
Help us with planning the our Annual Gala by joining the Gala Committee, which meets regularly to produce an outstanding fund-raising party.
We truly believe that as a nation we use more paper being "paperless" than we did before there was such a thing. We could use a consistent volunteer (at least once a week) to help out with filing, scanning, and creating client binders as well as light receptionist duties.
SUMMER CAMP STAFF
Summer camp usually is held in July at Pinecrest Retreat Center in Moscow, TN. Campers enjoy water fun, arts and crafts, entertainment, making tie-dye items, volleyball, dancing, Zumba, swimming, eating great food (even when their parents say they won't), hiking, making s'mores, hanging out by the campfire, and learning more about independence. This could be a come and go experience or you could stay for the night or week...depending on your interest level
WEEKEND RETREAT COORDINATOR
Once a month we host a weekend retreat for our clients with disabilities giving them the opportunity to experience time away with their peers and giving their caregivers some much needed time to rejuvenate and have a respite from the constant demands of care giving. During these weekend retreats, particularly on Saturday, we need a coordinator to assist in the leisure activities designed to keep the campers engaged.
WHEELCHAIR BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT
Our Wheelchair Basketbal Tourament is held each March in conjunction with National Disabilities Awareness Month. We could use some help contacting potential teams (typically corporations whose employees play - we have a list of teams) and potential sponsors. Volunteers also are needed to help at the event’s concession stand and ticketing.
