Service Opps

Looking for community service opportunities? You’ve come to the right place! The following is a sample of opportunities we have available for our members. For more opportunities, become a member and gain access to our Sakai site, which has many resources for community service opportunities, personal statements samples, graduate school information,  and more!

North Carolina Autism Society: looking for longer-term volunteers to assist in the following areas:

-Structure creation (related to skill building, communication of needs and wants, tasks)
-Communication systems creation and updates (iPad Apps, PECs, sign language information)
-Sensory task creation

Volunteers helping with these tasks would be developing more effective methods of education for autistic students. The NC Autism’s Society is in Cary, but we may be able to work out some means of working remotely. The NC Autism Society will also most likely need assistance with clerical tasks.

Triangle Aphasia Project: always looking for volunteers!

Volunteers need to fill out an application. They are planning a 10th Anniversary Celebration soon, and they sent out an e-mail asking for volunteers. Send Peter an email if you’re interested!

CASTLE:
Looking for volunteers to help the toddler class around 9:30 or 10:30 on Wednesdays and Fridays. Anyone interested in working with toddlers that have Auditory-Verbal  Therapy and/or hearing impairment should sign up for this. However, the volunteers would have to have an annual TB test and get a background check.
If interested in volunteering, they can contact Velma Grose at vgrose@unch.unc.edu
