Volunteer at Lakemary

Growing Community Together

Since our founding in 1969, Lakemary has looked to the open hearts and dedication of the community in which it is nestled to help us provide a multitude of opportunities for adults and children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other intellectual/developmental disabilities.

Because Lakemary offers so many programs and services to the residents and students we serve, there are many volunteer opportunities available that require a varied range of skills, certifications, and preparation. We basically split these opportunities into two basic classifications:

Single Visit

Single visit volunteers will assist Lakemary staff with operational tasks or attend special events where they will be assigned to a team or task by the Volunteer Coordinator. Interactions with individuals served will be supervised by Lakemary’s trained staff.

Volunteer Activities

Volunteer Classroom

Ongoing/Interactive

Ongoing volunteers will work directly with the adults or children on our campuses. In these positions, you may be asked to coach, teach, mentor, chaperone, or share a skill/experience with one individual or a group. In many cases, these interactions will be supervised by our trained staff.

We know it takes a special person to volunteer and the generous work of people such as yourself ultimately allows us to fulfill our mission to provide an array of services, programs, housing, and valuable experiences for the individuals we serve.
