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 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!
DSACO Therapy Camp:
We need volunteers to help us host our #LOVEYOURSELFIE therapy summer camp offered by Select Physical Therapy Occupational Therapists, therapy dogs Whisky and Izzy and the DSACO staff. This camp is open to children with Down syndrome ages 10-17. We will focus primarily on self-care and self-awareness. Each day we will relate what we learn to topics such as appropriate touch, healthy self-image, and how to be the healthiest version of ourselves. Volunteer counselors are asked to pair up one-on-one with campers to help them with the camp activities throughout the day!
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.
