Are you looking for a way to make a difference in the lives of those with disabilities?

Volunteers help provide support and encouragement to students in a variety of performing arts settings: classes, theatre companies, cabarets, or workshops. Volunteers may help lead participants through a song, dance, or activity, or buddy up with a student who needs additional support.

At ArtStream, we’re searching for dedicated, positive role models who are interested in supporting individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities. No prior experience is required, we only ask that you are interested in working with individuals with disabilities or the arts.

Where:

We have one-time and weekly volunteer opportunities in Virginia, Maryland, and online.

Why:

We believe that through collaborative performance and lifelong learning opportunities, people with Intellectual and developmental disabilities gain the skills and confidence to engage with the world. We believe that when people make their own choices and are engaged, stimulated, challenged, and inspired they surpass both their own and others’ expectations.

How:

To apply to be a volunteer sign up here or on our website: art-stream.org/who-we-serve/volunteer

After applying we’ll schedule a time to chat with you to see what opportunity works best for your schedule. We do require volunteers to submit a background check and attend a Zoom training session.
