The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Assist children ages 6-12 and/or 13-21 in group recreation activities and games. Each group consist of 15-16 special needs children who display various forms of autism and other developmental disabilities, however they are all ambulatory and enjoy gym time. Cultivate an environment of inclusion through recreation that offers individuals a chance to develop positive relationships with each other and their own self-esteem.
Experience with recreation for kids of all ages preferred (students are encouraged to volunteer), experience with therapeutic recreation a plus but not required.
