About

FAR is in need of enthusiastic volunteers for Friday Night Parties. They are held once a month on the 3rd Friday of each month. The party starts at 6:00 and ends at 9:00PM. At the parties our special needs participants, ages 13 and older, will have the chance to socialize with peers while engaging in fun games/activities, arts and crafts, as well as dancing. Dinner and dessert are also provided!

We ask volunteers to arrive at 5:00PM to help with set up and decorating. Cleaning up after usually goes until 9:30PM. During the party we need our volunteers to help encourage socialization and assist the participants with some of the activities in addition to serving dinner and decorating the auditorium. Not only will you have a fun time but dinner is also FREE to all volunteers!

This is a great opportunity for you to get involved in the community while having fun!

**Students in high school and college can earn volunteer hours and experience working with the special needs population.
