Each year, to keep our mission moving, ESP relies on:
While our programming volunteers are often high school and college students, age 14+ looking to make a significant commitment by working directly with our participants, there are always opportunities to support ESP through special events and work days!
Though standard program volunteers are age 14+, we have opportunities for our young volunteers to get involved and start engaging with our community! Here are the different opportunities:
Volunteers age 8-13
In this program, Young Leaders will learn about ability awareness, how to advocate for others, and leadership skills.
Volunteers age 8-11
Young volunteers can start volunteering at fundraising events and programs by helping set-up, hanging our with our participants, and helping to facilitate programs.
Volunteers age 12-13
These VITs can start working with a participant by being paired with a counselor and their buddy. They'll begin to assist the counselor if approved to do so!
