DSAGSL simply could not provide the programs and services to the nearly 2000 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. Follow the link for that event and choose an open slot that works for you.
Thank you for your support!
Self-Advocate Activity Day
Are you a Self-Advocate who likes to fish and golf? We have a unique opportunity for you on Monday, August 3rd from 4:00-7:30pm!
To keep everyone physically distanced, healthy, and safe, we have changed the Birdies & Bass Golf Tournament event for this year. Instead we are inviting Self-Advocates to come out and fish with a parent or guardian two weeks before the actual Golf Tournament. Each parent and angler will have their own golf cart and be spread out around the lake.
After fishing, there will be a Golf Clinic with instruction and games. Dinner will also be provided.
Due to the change in the event, we will not be able to have volunteers drive drink carts or be a part of the golf tournament on August 17th.
To sign up for the Self-Advocate Activity Day fishing tournament and golf clinic, visit the sign up page. There are only 18 spots available and this is a first come, first served sign up.
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.
DSAGSL Holiday Party
Each year the DSAGSL hosts a holiday party for families in the community. We need volunteers to help with Santa photos, crafts, games, food service, and more.
