Volunteer

Your helping hand will support us to keep things running

We provide essential early identification and interventions to children with special educational needs.  While we get support from the government we are committed to making our services affordable for all.  Because of that, committed volunteers in the classrooms, on our Board, steering committees, and sponsored events help us keep the lights on!

What can I do as a volunteer?

  • Volunteer your expertise. If you have less time availability, you can consider volunteering your skills whether in marketing, graphic design, human resource, staff coaching or training. We are always looking for help with improving the different things that we do.
  • Steady commitments are welcome in the classroom. If you are able to volunteer a certain amount of time per week, we want you in our classrooms. Because of the training required for classroom volunteers we are only able to take steady commitments.
  • Beneficiary events. Please recommend us as a beneficiary to your companies fundraising events.
  • Sign-up with twopresents.com and choose the CDC to become a beneficiary of your birthday or other events.
