Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Sharing the Arts is a non-profit performing arts program for individuals with mild to moderate developmental delays, including chromosomal abnormalities, Asperger's, genetic anomalies and other developmental delays. Our mission is to enhance the lives of individuals with special needs through the performing arts. Classes are led by teachers with support staff to provide redirection and assistance. Pre-teen through college-age volunteers serve as assistants, demonstrators,mentors as well as friends in the class. Presentation and performance opportunities exist for some classes.
Sharing the Arts relies on volunteers to assist in the classroom. The program currently has volunteers from various neighboring high schools as well as a participant of George Washington Middle School in Ridgewood, NJ, 7th grade Community Service Program.
Various volunteers have been honored over the years by The Volunteer Center of Bergen County.
Sharing the Arts participates in Access Ridgewood, a weekend event promoting the awareness of individuals with disabilities and recognizes their special gifts and talents.
