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.
The mission of No Limits is to serve an unmet need in the community by teaching deaf children to confidently speak, achieve, dream, and inspire.
No Limits is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 1996 and is the only theatre group in the nation for children with a hearing loss who speak and listen. The children of No Limits have performed in over 70 productions in 13 states, reaching an audience, to date, of over 100,000 people. Our work has been featured in the New York Times, Newsday, Oprah, and other media outlets.
The No Limits Educational Center provides year round, high-quality specialty services to children in the greater Los Angeles area. The No Limits program offers:
Biweekly literacy program
Weekly parent education courses
Theatre and public speaking program
Leadership & Mentoring Academy for teens
Support groups for children and their families
Due to the essential skills developed in our program, our graduates enter college and become productive and engaged citizens. Many of the original cast members of the first No Limits production volunteer weekly to give back to No Limits and inspire younger children who have a hearing loss and the families who love them.
