Ongoing volunteer opportunities allow you to have a set schedule for volunteering. Committee work, group support, and administrative volunteer opportunities are available based on your time, interests, and skills.
The Arc Minnesota is looking for volunteers for ¡Adelante!, a networking opportunity for Spanish-speaking families who have a loved one with an intellectual and developmental disability.
Volunteers provide childcare and lead recreation-based activities for kids while their parents attend a support group. This opportunity is great for volunteers wanting experience with social service programming and having fun with kids.
The time commitment is up to 3 hours a month per group, which includes drive or bus time. You do not need to speak Spanish in order to participate, and you can volunteer for the dates that work with your schedule.
¡Adelante! St. Paul:
