Are you looking for a valuable experience and a way to help your community? Breaking Down Barriers has volunteer opportunities for a range of skills and interests including:

  • Companions for adults with a disability
  • Administrative or office help
  •  Fundraisers
  •  Event help
  •  Facilitating workshops and activities (crafts, hobbies, technology, travel)
  • Chaperons for field trips
  • People with interesting life experiences to share

Additionally, our Board of Directors and all committees are volunteer-run. If you have skills or knowledge that you want to share, Breaking Down Barriers would love to hear about it!

All volunteers complete an application, provide references, and attend an interview and orientation session before beginning. Volunteers may also need to obtain a criminal reference check/vulnerable sector screening, drivers' abstract, etc. Other agency policieswill be reviewed and signed off on, including a pledge of confidentiality and code of conduct. The minimum age of our volunteers is 16. Volunteers who work with consumers, consumer information, or cash must be 19 or older.

We provide support and training to our volunteers. Please contact our office at 705-445-1543 if you are interested or have questions about volunteering!
