Arts & Crafts Buddy

Are you interested in a rewarding field that works closely with individuals who have intellectual and developmental disabilities? Would you like to share your interests with someone who enjoys it just as much as you?

Partners Health Plan, a not-for-profit health plan that supports the lives of individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities, is looking for volunteers for its PAL Program. The PAL Program discovers a member’s passion and interests and matches them with a person or place in the community who shares a similar passion or interest.

Partners Health Plan is looking for volunteers who would like to participate in arts and crafts, go to lunch, and spend time with a new friend who has a great sense of humor! Volunteers will meet with their "buddy" once every week or two (depending on the volunteer's schedule); the first outing will always be accompanied by a Community Resource Coordinator. Volunteers will provide their own transportation to meet their buddies, and report to the Community Resource Coordinator with updates on the progress of their outings. This is a great way to form natural friendships with individual based on similar interests!

Benefits:
Volunteers receive an optional professional reference upon completion of program and have the opportunity to join an incredible community of passionate staff and volunteers.

Hours:
Approximately once a week depending on the activity and volunteer's schedule. The suggested time commitment is six months to one year. PHP provides equal opportunityies for all volunteers.
