Central PA Down Syndrome Awareness Group
Central PA Down Syndrome Awareness Group is committed to the success of individuals with Down syndrome. By promoting acceptance and awareness in our community we can empower individuals with Down syndrome to meet and exceed their dreams.
Our volunteers are a vital piece to our future accomplishment. You do not need to donate a lot of time to make a difference in the lives of individuals with Down syndrome. CPADSAG needs volunteers to do everything from making phone calls to planning events.
Youth volunteers (under 18) need parent permission (via email) and a signed waiver prior to participation at all events. This waiver includes verbiage of acceptance of photos to be published on social media and our website.

Penn State Health Peer Social Skills Group
Volunteer are needed for a social skills group that we run here at Penn State Health. The group serves adolescents with autism spectrum disorder, and helps them to develop their skills in a variety of situations (i.e. basic conversation, conflict resolution, friendship development).
One of the most crucial elements to the program is the involvement of peer volunteers (13-18 years old) who are willing to volunteer their time on Wednesday evenings from 5:30-7pm. This is a great opportunity for students who would like to gain volunteer experience, have an interest in psychology or simply need to earn hours towards their graduation requirements.
Volunteers are the backbone of Special Olympics Pennsylvania represented through 55 local programs. We could not exist without the dedication of thousands of Pennsylvania citizens. The time, energy and enthusiasm of volunteers fuel our movement and make our athletes’ dreams a reality. There is a place for everyone in our organization. Youth volunteer applications require a parent/guardian signature.
