How Do I Become a Volunteer Partner?
If you have a strong interest in working with adults that have developmental disabilities, you can apply to become a Volunteer Partner through Joanne. They work one-on-one with adults in the VIP program, helping them succeed in their role. You will be matched with an adult that best suits your availability.
