Our work is possible because of people like you.
Volunteers are the backbone of our organization, and we are always looking for passionate people committed to spreading our message of inclusion and acceptance to join the WeEMBRACE family. If you or your child are looking for a fun and rewarding volunteering experience, you have come to the right place.
We welcome anyone who is at least 10 years old to come volunteer for us. There are no qualifications to volunteer for us, all you need is a loving and caring heart! We also issue community service hours to people that request it. Please scroll down to learn more about specific volunteering opportunities, and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

In our buddy match program, volunteers are paired with an individual with different abilities with similar interests and form a long-lasting friendship. The buddies meet once a week (currently virtual due to COVID-19), and talk about whatever they feel like! This program is meant to improve communication skills, and increase the awareness of neurodiversity and its awesomeness. To learn more about the buddy match program, click here.
As a class instructor, you will have the opportunity to create a class and teach individuals with different abilities. There are no requirements to the topics that can be taught. However, we do ask that the classes refrain from academics, and focus on hobbies and extra curricular activities such as art, music and dance. To get an idea of what class you could teach, check out our existing classes here.
We always need volunteers to help us with events, in-person classes and administrative work. If you want to help us with building our resource database, social media, or would like to volunteer at in-person events like holiday parties, danceathons and talent shows, this is the perfect opportunity for you!
