Our volunteers are an exciting, dynamic and diverse group of people who share a willingness to contribute their time and talents to spread awareness about Down syndrome. When and how much they contribute differs from person to person.There are opportunities in all areas of the DS Society at the national, divisional and chapter levels including but not limited to:

  • Volunteering at a fundraising event (GO21 Walk, etc.)

  • Becoming a leader in your community (committee member, fund development, etc.)

  • Lending your expertise (marketing and communications, policy planning, public relations, legal advocacy, etc.)

  • Offering direct support to individuals with DS (peer support, friendly visiting, wellness programs, self-help group facilitation)

  • Helping out at an educational event (education session, resource fairs, etc)

  • Supporting and advocating for issues faced by people with DS (meeting with elected officials, act as host at DS Society events, etc)

  • Providing support at your local office (reception, filing, data entry)
