Why Volunteer?

Volunteers are the bridge between the community and the services that we provide.  Because of the involvement of volunteers, our organization is able to continually increase the supports to the people who need our services.  We make every effort to provide meaningful and rewarding opportunities for our volunteers.

We provide orientation and offer on-going training opportunities, flexible time commitments and numerous opportunities to meet new people, learn new skills, and get involved in your community.

Join us as we inspire possibilities to create inclusive communities for people who have an intellectual disability!

Krystine is a friend, volunteer, and role model for the people we support at CLSC.  She has a degree from Brock University, works in various settings to bring the issue of adaptive communication to the forefront, and has volunteered a the CLSC Day Program for more than 5 years.  In this role, Krystine volunteers with adults who have intellectual disabilities.  Krystine bring enthusiasm, acceptance, inclusion and fun to the day program setting.  She instinctively connects with both staff and participants.  The people we support look forward to the days she joins our group for social, recreation, and learning interactions.  She is currently implementing a computer skills training course for small group instruction to meet education goals and individual interests. Krystine continues to be a flexible and consistent part of our Day Program supports!
