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!

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.
