Why volunteer at Southeast Works?

Southeast Mission states, “We provide services to help people with developmental disabilities lead productive, independent, and fulfilling lives.” As an agency we work really hard to prove our mission statement to be true, and we would like for volunteers to help us live out our mission in all of our work. Volunteers are people that care and want to help people with developmental disabilities that they are a valued part of our work force and are participating in their community. Our participants are people that the extra attention and support that a volunteer could offer.

What would a volunteer do?

A volunteer would help train and assist the participant with the job tasks at hand by working side by side with them. They would also have the opportunity to assist residential staff at the homes or enjoying a recreation event, of choice, with our participants.
