Skill Sprout is looking for children ages 4-17 to volunteer as Peer Volunteers at all of our locations: Lombard, Normal, Peoria, Springfield and Washington, IL and also Farmer's Branch, TX.
Peer Volunteers help in therapy sessions by demonstrating positive social skills (conversations, turn-taking, cooperation, etc.) These skills are practiced through games, crafts and other fun activities.
Volunteering is a fun, social, energetic and rewarding experience for children of all ages.
Your child will start as a Bronze Peer and receive training and support, then work his/her way up through Silver Peer, Gold Peer, and even possible nomination for a Lead Peer! Each step in the process presents unique opportunities to: build confidence, make new friends, give back to your community, build an impressive resume, and more, all while having fun!
Whether your child can commit to weekly sessions on a long term basis or is only available a couple months out of the year, we have a place for him/her in our program!
HOW TO BECOME a Peer:
