Student & Human Services Volunteer Program

Though technically not a requirement, many colleges make community service an unofficial requirement for acceptance and community service is valued in job searches as well. Because many students are very busy trying to meet demands of classroom assignments, we allow volunteer programs on facebook, twitter and nonprofit causes managing online social networking activities, reaching out to their network of friends to bring awareness to our mental/physical disability and homelessness advocacy. The volunteers may organize a carwash, a bake sale, or get their school and community involved to raise funds for our cause. No experience is necessary and we welcome the entire family of the volunteer to get involved.

Our supporters often volunteer by donating their time collecting nonperishable goods, organize an effort to collect food for the homeless, sending out our mass mailings and making others aware of our cause to serve those with disabilities and homeless.

Our volunteers often make "I care" kits with combs, toothbrushes, shampoo, collect coats & blankets for homeless people, working in a soup kitchen, help with repairs at homeless shelters, donate art supplies to a homeless shelters, make a craft and give to the elderly at a nursing home, perform lawn care duties for the elderly, or read interesting books to the elderly in nursing homes.

The students receive a lifelong positive influence from this service, gain planning skills, social justice training, increased awareness of social issues prevalent in the United States, add value to college and work resumes, connect with others, find purpose, make a difference, and develop leadership skills.

Volunteer Programs Coordinator Intern

Answering volunteer's questions and responding to prospective volunteer inquiries. Interns prepare materials for training, maintain volunteer records, draft reports using the volunteer database and other assignments as needed. At the end of the internship, interns will be educated in the fundamentals of a volunteer program and its importance to a nonprofit organization

Digital Media Volunteer Interns

Interns are responsible for writing content on American Disability Foundation's behalf with 2-3 weekly post and updates, and additional responsibilities include assisting in development and facilitation of social media strategy for multiple campaigns, help maintain social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, and collect research on future social media initiatives.

Public Relations Volunteer Intern



Volunteerism is a great way to gain experience in the communications field. With projects that span across the broadcasts, print and media management disciplines, interns have the dynamic opportunity to gain real-world, public relations experience. Interns are responsible for media research, writing press releases.

Social Media Volunteer Intern

Do you love social networking and want to make a difference?

We seek social media volunteer/interns who will support the coordination of our social media strategies and plans on behalf of American Disability Foundation. Our goal is to use social media as a tool to create a movement to bring awareness to various disabilities, initiate discussion, and clarify myths and facts about people with disabilities. Our volunteer interns must provide helpful resources and information to students, employers, families, the media and anyone concerned about disabilities and the impact it can have on the finances and lifestyle of American families. The volunteer will provide information on disability etiquette specifically with how to approach people with disabilities such as those with mental illness, those in wheelchairs, speech difficulties, deafness, blindness or severe cognitive impairments.

Court Referral Community Service Program

Community service is a privilege by the courts instead of jail time, so American Disability Foundation consider this partnership with the courts very important for the community and those ordered to do community service. We try our best to allow the convicted person to use his or her professional skills to benefit the community in some way; however, a convicted lawyer would be specifically prohibited under our rules from doing pro bono legal services as community service. Someone convicted of stealing would not be allowed near anyone's personal items doing their community service. An IT professional would be allowed to complete community service doing web design, maintaining websites, designing a database, or other related IT duties but not if their crime was IT related. A convicted drunk driver might appear before school groups to explain why drinking while driving is a crime. A convicted litterer may be required to do roadside and park cleanup of trash.

For young first time offenders, we try to get them supervision of police or sheriff departments, often on weekends to educate them on what constitutes ethically acceptable behavior and expose them to living examples in jail so that the youth will understand more about the consequences of bad choices and learn while doing their community service.
