Volunteers will help in centers that care for children, teenagers and adults with a wide range of physical and mental disabilities. The project aims to provide individualized care for people with disabilities, enabling them to become integrated within their community and to live a less stigmatized life. The centers provide many young individuals and adults with mental and physical stimulation to improve their quality of life.

While volunteering on the Special Needs Support project, you'll work alongside a team of local staff and other volunteers. Assist in specific activities mostly related to arts and crafts, physical therapy, exercise and activities such as swimming or walking with dogs. While your focus is not on daily operations, such as preparing food, serving meals, cleaning, or helping with personal hygiene, be prepared to possibly assist when needed.

This project is perfect for compassionate, patient and caring people. As you will be working closely with the local placement staff, you're not required to have previous experience or training to participate. Be aware beneficiaries speak mostly Spanish and have a limited English so you should be ready to take this challenge.
