Volunteer Opportunities

Our volunteers are amazing.  We would love for you to be one.

What does volunteering for Outside the Box mean?  For our participants, it means having a new, friendly face helping them achieve their goals.  For our staff, it means having some extra help that is so helpful.  And for our volunteers, it means having a life-changing experience that touches the lives of our participants.

Wondering how you can help?  We want your talents and strengths, whatever they are!  We believe that every volunteer should be valued, supported, and appreciated.  We depend on our volunteers to enhance our services and provide a way for us to reach the broader community.  Our volunteers (and hopefully soon, you!) make a huge difference at OTB!

Ways to Volunteer

Direct Support

Work hand in hand with our participants!  We love our participants at Outside the Box and you will too.  Providing direct services will give you a chance to participate in group activities and build strong and lasting relationships. It is also a wonderful place to fulfill both undergraduate and graduate internship requirements.

Group volunteering

Outside the Box always welcomes groups into our community. Whether you are a corporate business looking to build team camaraderie, or garden club looking for a special project, we have ways that you can help.  Outside the Box has a creative and collaborative philosophy and we are open to all people and ideas.

Special Events

Outside the Box hosts a variety of special events throughout the year. We are always in need of extra hands during these times. The ways in which you can help are endless; from greeting guests to helping out at our annual golf outing!

Behind the Scenes

If working hands-on with people is not for you, Outside the Box has a variety of other ways you can volunteer. We will work with you to tailor your volunteering experience.
