VOLUNTEER WITH THE BEYOND 21 CONNECT PROGRAM
The Connect Program is a volunteer-based befriending initiative that aims to cultivate social relationships between volunteers and adults with developmental disabilities. There are two ways you can get involved:
Individual volunteers are connected with a Beyond 21 program participant and spend one-on-one time exploring shared interests in the community. Volunteers and participants are carefully matched, taking each persons interests and personality into account. 1:1 Connections meet on a regular basis (minimum once monthly) and enjoy lots of fun activities – going out for coffee, sharing a meal, getting a manicure, attending a sports event or creative workshop, etc.
Hub Volunteers spend time connecting with and supporting the social involvement of Beyond 21 program participants in a supervised group setting. Activities take place on site at The Hub (our programming space) where volunteers are invited to share their talents and take part in different activities alongside participants (i.e. art, crafting, puzzles, card games, billiards, baking, etc.).
