Support Young Adults Who Have Disabilities
Support Our Young Adult Community Members
Help us to support young adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities to lead independent and fulfilling lives. Meaningful volunteer opportunities include:
- Event Support Volunteer: Assist our staff-run, popular bi-weekly events with the Shupin Social Club. Events include cooking classes, karaoke, bowling, and movie nights. Volunteer commitment is one event per month, typically on weekday evenings. We are seeking volunteers to support in-person events.
- Shupin Resident Mentor: Get matched with a Gary Shupin Independent Living Community resident based on your similar interests and personalities. A commitment to partner for six months is required, ideally growing into a longer relationship.
No prior experience working with adults with disabilities is necessary. All that is asked is an open mind and heart, a willingness to learn, and a volunteer commitment of six months or longer.
