About iHOPE:
The International Academy of Hope (iHOPE) is a highly specialized private school focused on educating students, ages 5-21, with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and multiple disabilities. It fulfills an unmet need in the community while serving as a model of best practices in the delivery of Special Education services. iHOPE provides its students with a literacy-rich curriculum that incorporates a multidisciplinary and collaborative program including cognitive strategies, small group instruction, assistive technology, therapeutic intervention, behavior management, physical rehabilitation, social interaction, and transition services.

Volunteer Opportunity:
iHOPE is collecting toys for our annual Toy Drive. The toys received are given to children with traumatic brain injuries and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. After the toys are received and before the toy is given to a child, they must often be adapted first. This requires opening up the toy's electronics and soldering in a cable that is attached to a switch, which will then allow the child to play with the toy.

If you have experience in soldering and will be available to volunteer at least one half-day a week, on a Monday-Friday, throughout the month of November and December please contact us to sign up to volunteer.

Please email Volunteer@YAI.org to sign up or for more information.

Thank you!
