8 people are interested
A local resident with disabilities including blindness is looking for a community inclusion buddy...what does that mean? This individual would like a companion for guided walks (weather permitting) taking para transit and visiting local area shopping venues, outdoor concerts, local library events, speeches, presentations or programming. The buddy would travel as a 'companion' on para transit which is usually free or very low cost. So, if you enjoy the occasional iced-coffee and chatting with a new friend this is a great opportunity for you.
No personal care is required.
Requirements to be a great volunteer include:
- strict observation of client confidentiality;
a desire to help others;
a pleasant demeanor;
a good reading/speaking voice;
average reading skills;
organizational or planning abilities;
a good driving record;
a clear criminal history;
access to a car with proof of insurance; or a willingness to take paratransit.
We'll work with your schedule.
