We're growing! Traditionally, our organization has provided employment opportunities to intellectually disabled folks. However, in the recent years, we have expanded our outreach to encourage and provide community inclusion services to our clients as well. We currently have three site locations, The Church on the Hill, The Senior Center, and the Community Center here in McMinnville. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, we provide classes, activities, or group meetups, for or clients where they have an opportunity to learn life skills, participate in a fun activity, and socialize.
As we grow, we are looking towards the community to participate in our community inclusion programs, which we call our Enrichment Classes, by volunteering during scheduled activities and even leading your own classes! This can mean anything from arts and crafts, to money managements, to ping pong, to karaoke! If you have a hidden talent that you’d like to share with our clients, we want to hear from you. Are you an engaging storyteller? Love to teach about healthy lifestyles? Got out-of-this-world organizational skills? MVA would love to put your gifts to work!
Even if you don’t work directly with MVA clients, there still are dozens of supportive tasks you could help with. Volunteer at our golf tournament or stuff envelopes in a fundraising drive. We appreciate all your talents and will put them to good use.
An MVA staff member is on site during all client activities, so volunteers have a resource for assistance if necessary. A background check is required to volunteer as well. Safety for all participants is imporant to us.
College students, client parents and local service club professionals are perfect for this opportunity to make a difference. Students may receive course credit for sharing their expertise as a class; parents and service club members can participate in a wide range of group activities.
Our clients are an inspiring group of adults who love to meet new people, discover fresh adventures and serve in their communities. Volunteers constantly tell us about the breadth of enjoyment they get from working in the MVA universe.
We look forward to hearing from you!!
