Older adults with disabilities and younger adults who have age-related disabilities have the same need as anyone else for engagement in meaningful activities and the opportunity to make a contribution within their community. Are you willing to be a champion for these individuals? Are you seeking a bit of perspective on possible career options? Is your immediate community in need of diversification? If any of the above are applicable to you, consider becoming a Day Services Chaperone working alongside our MARI program.
Reporting to the direct Supervisor and or Volunteer Coordinator, the chaperone will help provide a supportive, respectful environment for all residents or clients of Community Involvement Program’s (CIP) Music, Arts, Recreation, and Inclusion (MARI) program. The chaperone will advance CIP’s capacity to further provide a quality community experience for older adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities for whom employment is no longer a priority.
