Are you someone who wants to make a difference in the life of a young adult with an intellectual disability? Do you enjoy contributing to your community and helping others? We want to hear from you!

Student Links is seeking a volunteer to work one on one with students and young adults with intellectual disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorder, or others, by exploring common interests, assisting in building a full life, and helping to build independence by creating meaningful roles for the student to participate in and contribute to their community.

Volunteers may help the student with travel training, exploring their community and attending events, playing sports or going to the gym together, working on a project together, introducing them to your network or meet up groups, and developing life skills to prepare them for life after school.

Options to work in either English or French.

If you have experience, or are looking to gain some, working with vulnerable populations, individuals with various abilities and challenges, or community-based services, please contact Siobhan Costelloe Student Links coordinator for more information.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing how you can be of help to a young adult in your community today!
