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 has joined forces with personal trainer and strength and conditioning expert, Luke Larson, to offer fitness classes! Fitness Classes are broken down by age group and are open to participnats with Down syndrome! We ask that volunteers come ready to work out, have a good time and ensure that each particpant remains safe and encouraged throughout the workout! Please bring a water bottle, hand towel, your tennis shoes and get ready to SWEAT IT OUT with your DSACO friends! 
We need volunteers Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m.

Tutoring:

DSACO has hired a certified Special Education teacher to prepare a lesson plan but the tutor needs several volunteers to serve as tutoring aids. Tutoring aids are not required to have a background in teaching, but rather a willing attitude and fun countenance. This is an extremely enriching opportunity and the kids LOVE making new friends!

Kylee’s Kitchen:

DSACO offers a microwave based cooking class for teens and adults with Down syndrome. The class is meant to teach and encourage independent living skills while having fun alongside new and old friends. Volunteers will be paired up one-on-one to help the participants complete the week’s recipe. This is an extremely fun and rewarding opportunity and the participants LOVE hanging out and cooking alongside their friends!

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 hannah@dsaco.org or call 405-600-9981.
