Are you looking for a way to make a difference in the lives of those with disabilities?
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.
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.
We have one-time and weekly volunteer opportunities in Virginia, Maryland, and online.
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.
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 review training materials.
Get involved and make a difference! Check out our website to learn more.
For in person opportunities, volunteers are required to be vaccinated and wear a mask for the duration of the opportunity.
"ArtStream gives people a sense of belonging in a beautiful way. There’s no way to overstate ArtStream’s impact. It’s a program of inclusion, of involvement in the community, and most importantly, of excitement and enthusiasm!" - ArtStream volunteer since 2018
