Join a network of people who work to strengthen communities
The newest service of the MODDRC is the Volunteer Network. This network provides opportunities for parents, self-advocates, professionals or other interested individuals to “volunteer” their time to give back to the disability community. There are many ways that you can get involved that will not only be a benefit to yourself but also to the many other people who are touched by disability.
The opportunities are usually sent by email and if or when you have time to participate is decided by you. These opportunities are designed to utilize the strengths and talents of individuals with disabilities, parents and family members. Your experience matters, we need you.
Some volunteer opportunities may be to :
1. Assist by reviewing or writing products (videos, newsletter, brochures, training curriculum, etc.)
2. Become a Sharing Our Strength mentor.
3. Get involved in your local community by joining local boards or committees, serving as a trainer, telling your story.
If you are interested in volunteering please call 800-444-0821 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
