"I've come to love my time at Rainbows. I'll see a smile from one of the children, or hear a parent say 'thank you.' And I realize what I'm doing is the easy part." – Volunteer
Rainbows United, Inc. has many ways you can help meet the needs of children with special needs and their families in our community. We offer one-time and long-term volunteer opportunities for both individuals and groups. Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator to learn more about how you can get involved.
Individual volunteers can choose from a wide variety of options. Rainbows has many needs in the classroom, outdoors and around the office. There are often special projects that also require volunteers. Please find our current volunteer opportunities under the "downloads" tab, or call the volunteer coordinator to ask about one-time projects.
A Special Note for Students: If you are seeking a practicum or internship requiring the evaluation of a supervising professional please contact Debbie Mai, Vice President of Programs and Services, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your class requirements and area of study with the subject line “student practicum” in this important communication.
Any student requiring less than 10 observation hours, may contact Jennifer Francois at email@example.com or (316) 267-5437 to make arrangements.
Volunteer groups serve Rainbows in a variety of ways. You might take part in a work project (cleaning, gardening, building), facilitate a classroom activity (games, art project, 1-1 mentoring) or help with a special event (field day, dance party, fundraiser). Each group is individually matched to a project based upon the age of the participants, the times volunteers are available and the needs of the agency. Please call our Volunteer Coordinator to arrange for a group volunteer project.
