VOLUNTEERING PROCESS and VOLUNTEERING OPPORTUNITIES
DSACO has a consistent need for volunteers throughout the week and we love new faces! The process of becoming a volunteer is as follows:
1- Choose which DSACO program or event works best with your schedule and sign up!
DSACO Fitness Class:
DSACO is excited to offer FREE speech therapy to children (ages 18 months+) and teens with Down syndrome. Volunteers will serve as aids to our therapist and will be utilized as one-on-one volunteers with each child/ teen who signs up! There is no prior training required for volunteers, so please do not hesitate to attend if this is your first time!
Volunteers will be assigned one-on-one to play with and watch children with Down syndrome as well as their siblings whose parents are attending our DSACO workshops! We will do crafts, watch a movie and eat lunch!
Down Syndrome Festival & 5k:
The Down Syndrome Festival & 5k is DSACO’s largest annual fundraiser. DSACO relies on over 300 volunteers every year to make this event possible! There are several different jobs and time slots available.
2- Please arrive 10-15 minutes before your designated volunteer shift so we can input your information into our volunteer database, have you fill out a volunteer application, get to know you and field any additional questions you may have! You can download a volunteer application here.
We ask that if you need to change or cancel a sign-up that you do so 24-72 hours in advance so we can find a replacement volunteer. We are extremely excited about working alongside you and if you have any additional questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 405-600-9981.
