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: First, we are
looking for student leaders on 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
Additionally, we are looking for individual volunteers to
provide childcare at our weekly respite program, Parents' Night
Out. Parents' Night Out is offered the first through the fourth
Friday of each month from 5:30 to 10:00 p.m. at Easter Seals
Crossroads. The program provides care for the children and their
siblings, ages six months through 12 years, while their parents
enjoy an evening out. Parents' Night Out provides a safe and
nurturing environment for all children, recreational experiences,
gross motor experiences in a fun, brightly-colored, indoor play gym
and large, outdoor playground with adaptive equipment, care for
siblings, a staff/adult volunteer to child ratio of 1:3, themed
activities, and nutritional snacks.
