Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are needed to work with our adult students who have varying levels of learning disabilities. The role of a volunteer is to work in conjunction with our full-time staff of specialists, primarily to provide much-needed companionship for the students. Volunteers will act as “buddies” - arranging and participating in small group activities and assisting with the transition from one activity to another. Open Horizons specialists will provide training for volunteers and will assist where necessary.

Volunteers should be motivated to work with people living with disabilities and understanding of the challenges they face. It is essential that volunteers are polite, flexible, patient, mature, and dedicated to working in an environment where differences are met with an open heart.  Volunteers can be involved in a number of areas:
