Summer Volunteer Opportunity | PALS


I am reaching out to you on behalf of PALS Programs, a nonprofit organization who creates immersive experiences where young adults with Down syndrome and their peers have fun, grow as individuals, and build transformative friendships. We do this through camps around the country with a one-to-one camper to volunteer/counselor model.

PALS Fast Facts:

We welcome volunteers aged 16 and up to be paired with campers age 12-30

Volunteers commit one week of their summer to be part of PALS

Accepted volunteers encompass our values - welcoming, genuine, passionate, supportive, and fun

17 different programs are hosted across the country including San Francisco, North Carolina, Chicago, and Philadelphia!

Our volunteers do not need to have prior experience with Down syndrome or the disability community, and training is provided at the beginning of each program

There are year-round leadership opportunities for volunteers, including Ambassadors and Program Directors

Our mission focuses on diversity and inclusion for all people, with and without Down syndrome

There are no costs associated with volunteering at PALS - we also offer travel scholarships for eligible individuals.

Volunteer info provided here.
