Opportunity Details

Begin Here!

A Buddy is a volunteer whose focus is on a specific child or student with special needs. Because inclusion is our overall goal, we want to keep every child with their peers unless they need a break for any reason. Buddies stay with their child or student during Sunday morning or Wednesday night services helping them transition from one thing to the next, building bridges with their peers, and/or assisting them with any physical needs they may have. We want each child to have a consistent buddy (or a pair of buddies that rotate) where a relationship is fostered, trust is gained, and love is nurtured. No experience with special needs is required.
