For Volunteers and/or Shadow/Observation Students

“High Hopes is an incredible organization that is absolutely life-changing. The staff goes the extra mile to make everyone involved feel loved, accepted, and encouraged…regardless of differences or disability. The work that High Hopes does to empower kids for the future is truly extraordinary, and I ALWAYS leave with a smile on my face and in my heart"

 -Brady W., High Hopes Volunteer

Volunteers serve our organization in a variety of capacities in our inclusive preschool, pediatric therapy clinic, administrative office, and at family support and fundraising events. The many roles volunteers play at High Hopes are essential in achieving our mission of providing education and therapeutic services to the children in our community. We could not serve the number of children we do without the support of our amazing volunteers.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, volunteers were not used during the 2020-2021 school year. As the number of cases declines in our area, we will look for ways to welcome volunteers safely back to High Hopes.
