VOLUNTEERS MAKE IT ALL POSSIBLE
Thank you for volunteering and being a part of the Jacob's Chance Inclusive Team!
Your friendship and service will make a difference in the life of children, teens, and young adults with special needs.
What do Volunteers Do?
Buddies:Your job is to assist and encourage participants one on one, help create a positive and accepting social experience, and help us spread awareness. Our coaches and seasoned volunteers will help you become the best buddy you can be!
Coaches and Leaders: You will help on the athletic field to make sure everyone is participating and having fun. You will match buddies to players and make sure the athletic program is safe for all. Training is available. Leaders are needed for programs like Teen Scene, Music, Art, Drama, Culinary Arts, and Dance. Lend us your time and expertise.
Board Members:Working with The Jacob's Chance board you will be engaging with a group of professionals dedicated to our community. Bring your skillset to our team. Inquire to Kate Mardigian, to find out more.
Teen Leaders:If you are interested in joining our Teen Scene board and are willing to dedicate your time for one meeting a month and outside planning for a year, please apply. If you are interested in attending social activities to support your peers with diverse abilities when you are able, join the teen club.
