Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Since 1955, UCP has been the experts for children with special needs. By providing the best support, education and therapy, we offer hope to everyone touched by a disability. We began our journey helping children with cerebral palsy. Over the years and as needs changed, we began helping children with a variety of disabilities and developmental delays, including Down syndrome, autism, spina bifida, cerebral palsy, speech and hearing delays.
Over the last ten years, we have opened our doors to children without disabilities and embraced an education model called Inclusion. Our vision is not only based on research that supports children with and without disabilities achieve the same or better academic outcomes when part of an inclusive classroom, but a desire from families and educators to have children of all abilities co-exist in a school environment together.
Our goal is to collaberatively organize and support all schools and teachings so that each child receives a learning experience that fits their unique and individual needs.
UCP holds a number of events for community support, fundraising efforts, recognition, and community outreach. We continuously look for the support of our community memebrs to assist us in making these events a success in order to assist our students in succeeding and reaching their full potential.
