Things to Know

Your Language

Respect of participants is our number one priority. Remember to use person first language by using the person’s name over their disability. For example, “John has autism” rather than “John’s autistic".

Making Connections

Our participants have hobbies, families, jobs, and school outside of our programs. Start with something that you can relate to and let the conversation flow. Get to know the individuals you work with.

Trained Staff

Our volunteers are never left alone with a participant, do not perform personal cares, and are not responsible for behavior management. It’s okay to ask staff for guidance and support.
