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!

Respite Care:

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 snacks!
We need volunteers February 12th and March 2nd.

Boots & Bling Valentine’s Banquet:

Join us for a fancy night of dinner and dancing at DSACO’s annual Teen & Adult valentines banquet! We will need volunteers to help with set up, welcoming and escorting attendees, filling the dance floor and cleaning up following the event.
We need volunteers on Saturday, February 16th from 6:00 – 10:30 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.
