The ATOU team of volunteers travels to schools across ten counties, bringing our hands-on disability-awareness program to students. The core program, a three hour presentation is powerful, and provides an opportunity for students to experience what it might be like to have a disability or to feel different.
Volunteers are essential to ATOU. As part of each school program, we have 3-5 volunteer speakers and 4-8 volunteer activity instructors.
A Touch of Understanding is always looking for committed volunteers to assist with weekly presentations and other events during the year. Our volunteers form the heart of A Touch of Understanding and we always welcome new people.
High school and College students may earn community service hours by volunteering with ATOU.
