Volunteer Information

Categorical listing: Abilities

Mission: Easter Seals Crossroads improves the lives of children and adults with special needs, disabilities or challenges by promoting inclusion, independence and dignity.

Volunteer Opportunities: We are looking for student leaders on each campus. The primary responsibility would be to mentor another college student on the Autism spectrum once a week. The mentors will be helping these students connect with campus resources, gain time management skills, help with transitioning to a college environment, getting involved in social activities, and serving as a resource and friend. We are looking for students who are dedicated and motivated to be a positive role model in the lives of our students

When does this agency need volunteers?

We ask that our Peer Mentors give 1 hour per week (flexible hours). We also ask that Peer Mentors commit to at least a semester, but prefer a commitment of Fall and Spring semester.

Is volunteer training required?  Yes, for SOME opportunities

Is a background check required? Yes, for ALL opportunities
