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

You have given a little boy wings to fly.

“Waban has played a key role in turning my son’s life around. When Andy entered Waban at three-and-a-half, his prospects for a normal life were very dim. Waban sparked a curiosity and fueled a fire in Andy. The curriculum, speech, occupational, and physical therapy were important in his development, but the integral elements were the teacher and the teacher’s assistants who showered Andy with love and encouragement. You have fostered in him an unbridled curiosity for life, a realization that there is progress if you work hard enough and have a true understanding of compassion. You have given a little boy wings to fly.”
