Volunteers are an integral part of Lakeshore. Our participants depend on the enthusiasm and commitment of our volunteers. Lakeshore’s mission is to enable people with a physical disability to lead healthy, active and independent lifestyles through fitness, sport, recreation and research. That said, prior experience in sports and/or working with people who have physical disabilities is not required to volunteer, but it can be helpful. Volunteer Orientation and Disability Etiquette Training is required for all volunteers who wish to participate with our participants.

As a Lakeshore volunteer, you can choose to serve in a variety of areas such as working with youth and adult participants in recreation and athletic programs; assisting with aquatics and fitness; preparing for special events; assisting at the front desk; giving tours to prospective new members and guests; or providing photography or videography for an event or research. No matter how you choose to help, you will make a big difference as your work with others to give back to the community. Think of the reason why you want to volunteer. It really has very little to do with getting credit for time served, right?
We offer volunteer programs for adults, college students and a summer volunteer program for teens. Beyond that, we also have organizations or groups who come to participate in special projects.
