07 . GIVING BACK TO YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD
 

A . OVERVIEW

Volunteering or giving back to your neighbourhood can be a great way to become engaged with your community, share your gifts and talents, build confidence, learn new skills and meet new people.

There are formal volunteer positions you might consider but also informal things you can do to support your family and neighbours.

C . DISCUSSION QUESTIONS
  1. Discuss the types of volunteer positions that would be best for you. Would you prefer to volunteer at big community events or something quieter where you can get to know people? Do you have an interest that could guide you (i.e. the environment, the arts, sports, caring for others)?
     

  2. List the organizations that need volunteers in your community.
     

  3. List the creative ways in which you might support your neighbours. Could you bring in recycling containers, help shovel snow or cut grass for an elderly neighbour or bake something for someone who may enjoy it?

Funding for Taking Charge of Your Life was provided by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services through the Strategic Program Investments Fund. This special fund was created out of the 2013 Class Action Suit Settlement to enhance the ability of people with a developmental disability to guide and influence decisions affecting them from a system and personal perspective.
