through hands-on experiences that are tailored to your expertise and interests.
We provide the training and supervision you need to make your time here rewarding and meaningful — for yourself and the lives you touch.
Employment Guidance: Spend two hours helping people supported by PathWays with resume and cover letter writing, e-mail correspondence, managing on-line applications and follow up with potential employers after an interview.
Interview Prep: Work one-on-one to help people supported by PathWays gain confidence and sharpen their employment interview skills. Each hour and a half session provides them with two 30 minute mock interviews and feedback, and training for the volunteers.
Money Management: Teach financial literacy skills to people supported by PathWays who need to understand how to save money. During a two-hour workshop, volunteers work one-on-one with them helping them to improve their budgeting skills, understand credit and increase their savings.
The Art of Expression: In this arts-related workshop, you’ll be paired with adults supported by PathWays to create all types of projects. These workshops allow people to express themselves creatively, helping them to realize new strengths and develop a greater sense of dignity and independence.
Curb Appeal Club: Help beautify PathWays residences and facilities. Volunteer groups spend a few hours to a full day helping to clean and plant gardens, paint murals or assist with special renovation projects.
Supply Drives: Host a supply drive to help the people that we support.
Hobbies & Recreation: Work as part of a group with people supported by PathWays who attend our Recreation Programs. Volunteers can help people by assisting with different sports activities, yoga, fitness, cooking, arts, drama, photography, creative writing and any special area of interest that you might want to share with others. You can volunteer for a full or half day.
Person-to-Person Program: Will match people living in PathWays residences and attending its programs with volunteers from the community based on common interests and common points of view. Both people will need to commit to a partnership of at least a year, ideally growing into a longer, perhaps lifetime relationship. Volunteers and those supported will spend leisure time together to bridge the gap between people with intellectual disabilities and their neighborhoods.
