Volunteer with Waban

Volunteers have always been an important and integral part of our work at Waban.  Their individual and collective efforts have contributed to meaningful experiences and the successes of thousands of children and adults who participate in our programs.

Volunteer opportunities include fishing companions, card partners, reading, gardening, attending sporting or other community events, faith-based activities, running coaches, crafts, and many other fun-filled and rewarding events.

While it is not a difficult process to become a volunteer, there is an application and brief orientation process for all volunteers.  If you are interested in becoming a volunteer you can complete and mail or email the following volunteer application.

Waban Wear

Waban played a key role in turning my son’s life around.

“When our Jackson first started at Waban he made minimal to no eye contact, he would not respond to his name, wouldn’t dream of wearing a backpack, and was making no attempt at mimicking words. Jackson now enjoys spelling his name with blocks and playing with numbers. He will try very hard to mimic sounds and has started to make his needs known with a special communication device. To say we will miss Waban is an understatement, but the skills we are taking away from our time here will never be measured. You increased my son’s quality of life in just a few years and for a mother there is no greater gift you could give me than that.”
