Autism Society of North Carolina
Improve lives and support families with just a few hours of your time by volunteering with ASNC. You or your group can volunteer for one-time events around North Carolina and recurring opportunities in our offices or at Camp Royall, outside Pittsboro. Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older. In general, volunteers do not work directly with individuals on the autism spectrum.
Horses for Hope
Horses for Hope promotes therapeutic healing of mind, body, and soul by using horses as a dynamic, interactive tool for individuals of all ages, regardless of ability, including those who are experiencing physical, mental, or emotional challenges. Horses for Hope could not exist without our volunteers. We
have so many incredible people giving of themselves to help those with special needs. While experience with horses or working with people with special needs is helpful, it is by no means a requirement. All of our volunteers attend an orientation to familiarize themselves with our safety and operational procedures. Anyone 15 years or older that has a passion for kids and horses can sign up to volunteer with our horse camps. Each volunteer needs to register and complete volunteer forms (yearly if you volunteered before).
Special Olympics North Carolina
Volunteers are the heartbeat of our organization and help make Special Olympics possible. There is always something to do. At the end of the day, all volunteers have one thing in common, pride in knowing they are making a difference in the lives of Special Olympics athletes. Teens 14 and over are welcome at most events and roles. In some cases we do request that volunteers be 16 or 18 years of age – such as for the Plane Pull where we will be on the tarmac at RDU airport. Discover all the opportunities!
The Miracle League of the Triangle
Our league has a variety of volunteer opportunities. Enthusiasm and compassion are the prerequisites.By giving only a few hours of your time, you will not only make a difference in the life of a child with special needs, but also grow as a person. Any qualified individual age 12 and up can give individuals with special needs the gift of baseball by volunteering as a Buddy. Individuals aged 16 and above can serve as coaches.
United Cerebral Palsy of Central PA
There are opportunities to work directly with children and adults with disabilities, as well as behind the scenes. If you have a giving heart and some time to spare (as little as one day a year, or as often as you like), we would love for you to consider joining our corps of volunteers.
Volunteers are needed for: SibShop, Family Fun Fair and Holiday Gift Wrapping. Summer Internships are available. Sign ups are available through the Volunteer Info button.
