At times we all need a helping hand or an encouraging word. When you volunteer at Able to Serve, you’ll experience the fun, friendship and satisfaction of helping adults with special needs become more independent and use their abilities to serve others.
Monday-Friday (9 AM -3 PM) Full day/half day Opportunities
Helping participants learn to wash/dry clothes, use the computer and actively experience the community are just a few of activities in our program. Most importantly – you’ll be a friend who encourages our participants to be the best they can be!
Monday-Friday (mornings half-day) no special license required
Volunteering to drive is much more than operating a vehicle. It creates opportunities for participants to learn about their community.
Outings are typically scheduled to leave in the morning around 10 AM and return back at the building by lunchtime. Shopping at BJ’s for Backpack Buddies, exercising at the First Baptist Gym, visiting a local business and bowling at Buffaloe Lanes South are just a few of our monthly outings.
Special Events Volunteer
Scheduled throughout the Year
Able to Serve hosts several fundraisers, two community dances and many special activities (cookouts, Bible Camp, outdoor projects) each year. These events are in addition to the volunteers needed in our program. If you love organizing, decorating, working events – or this option just fits best in your hectic schedule – we’ve got a place for you.
Works around your Schedule
If you enjoy teaching your favorite hobby, music, craft or skill, our participants are ready and willing to learn! We always find ways to have fun, whether it’s knitting, making greeting or Christmas cards, gardening/greenhouse, art, fitness or cooking! Contact the office with a time that works with your schedule and share the supplies that we may need to purchase in advance.
Do you enjoy taking pictures? Do you like capturing moments on video? We need volunteers who will capture media throughout our program activities. These volunteers work closely with our team for content, telling the Able to Serve story in our social media channels, donor newsletter, brochures and blog.
Works around your Schedule
Do you enjoy talking about Able to Serve? Do you want to serve our participants and families from a desk? Volunteer for administrative tasks such as answering phones, sorting mailings and other office tasks. Hourly options and once-per-week slots are available Monday thru Friday. Basic computer skills are necessary for this position.
Church or Organizational Groups
We welcome church or organizational groups of all ages to spend the day or part of the day interacting with participants. Your group can plan games, crafts, snacks, and/or devotionals to bring. Your group can also assist with activities that we plan. Contact our office at 919.779-5545 to coordinate dates, times and activities.
