DSAGSL simply could not provide the programs and services to the over 1800 individuals with Down syndrome in the area and their families, without the help of volunteers. DSAGSL offers several opportunities to volunteer throughout the year including special event support, as well as program help. Please feel free to browse the list of opportunities we have coming up.

Thank you for your support!
Spring Family Picnic
Sunday, April 28, 2019 from 9:30am-12:30pm at Faust Park
The Friends for All Seasons Family Picnic is our annual spring event. We need volunteers to help photographers that will be stationed around the park, with managing their line and letting them know who is next to have their photo taken. We also need a few volunteers to help with food and games. This would be a great opportunity for teens and groups.

Step Up for Down Syndrome & Run for 21
Sunday, June 2, 2019 from 7:30am-12:30pm at Forest Park
Step Up for Down Syndrome is the largest celebration of Down syndrome in the area. This event welcomes over 2,500 families, friends, and community members who come to support the organization, raise awareness about Down syndrome, and CELEBRATE their loved one.
Run for 21 is a 5k plus a little extra! This 3.21 mile run begins and ends at the Step Up celebration.
We need volunteers to help along the race course, with food service, games, activities, crafts, bouncy castles, registration, and so much more.
This would be a great opportunity for groups to volunteer together!
Office Volunteers & On-Going Opportunities
DSAGSL has a few opportunities for dedicated volunteers who want a more regular, on-going schedule. Helping in the office and at the Down Syndrome Center at St. Louis Children’s Hospital (must be 18+ years old) require further training and a bigger commitment. Interested volunteers, please complete our brief volunteer intake form. After submitting the form, you should hear from a staff member within 5 business days.
