Volunteer with DSACT

Volunteering for DSACT is fun! The experience is different from any other volunteer opportunity you may have participated in before. If you want to make new friends and join in a fun activity, volunteering with DSACT is a great way to do that.

Volunteer at our Recreation Programs

Volunteers are most often needed at our recreation programs. Our recreation programs are vast and varied. You can learn more about those programs here. No matter your interest, you’ll find a recreation program that you’ll enjoy.

From Krav Maga to basketball to public speaking, volunteers participate in the activity, serve as a role model for our members with Down syndrome, help instructors keep everyone focused, and take pictures of our members having fun. Volunteers at our activities ensure that we are engaging the larger community in our efforts to foster inclusion for people with Down syndrome. DSACT volunteers must be at least 14 years old. Recreation programs are typically held on Saturdays and Sundays

Volunteer with our PEAK Speech Therapy Program

We regulary need volunteers for our PEAK Speech Therapy program. Check out our Speech Therapy page to learn more. Volunteers help with set-up, play with the children with Down syndrome, observe speech sessions, and help with clean-up. PEAK volunteers must be at least 16 years old. All opportunities are held on Saturdays throughout the year. Currently, we are in between sessions, so stay tuned for more information.
