Volunteering at Reach for Resources

Volunteers play a crucial role in our ability to serve children and adults with disabilities, and Reach has many opportunities available on weekends, evenings, or during the day. Volunteers can work directly with clients, assist us with a special skill, serve on the board, or help plan fundraising events.

To volunteer at Reach, you must go through an interview process and complete an orientation training session. Volunteers can be any age, but if under 14, you must have adult supervision.

Join our dynamic Board of Directors and help guide Reach in our efforts to fulfill our mission. The board meets the third Thursday of every month from 4:30-6:00 p.m. in Hopkins. Our board members actively participate in fundraising, communicating with legislators regarding disability issues, advocacy, strategic planning, fiscal management, and special events.
