Volunteer Opportunities

Telic Empowerment’s dynamic programming could not be possible without the help of volunteers like YOU!

Opportunities are available to serve on a committee or be a part of an event! Descriptions are as follows:

Committee-Based Volunteer

Committee- based volunteer opportunities may change according to the needs of the organization.

Volunteers interested in joining a committee are expected to attend committee meetings. This is a long-term volunteer assignment and requires a more dedicated time commitment.

** Please remember, although we are extremely grateful for your interest in volunteering with Telic Empowerment, completing a volunteer registration does not guarantee you a position. All registrations will be reviewed by Telic Empowerment. Approved volunteers will be contacted, offered an interview, provided the volunteer handbook, and instructions for training and assignments. Thank you for your interest!

What’s Next? (For Event Based Volunteers Only)

After your application is received, you will receive an email with details about a virtual event volunteer training.  (This is a mandatory part of participation in a volunteer assignment.  If a volunteer can’t attend, they can make arrangements to attend an alternate training with the program director.)

Volunteers should arrive at their event according to their scheduled time, and the program director will direct them to their volunteer assignment (if they haven’t been given the assignment prior to the event). Volunteers are expected to complete their duties according to the specifications outlined in the volunteer training and attend to the participants according to the TELIC  Way, which is explained in detail during the training, as well.

Our Volunteer Spotlight!

We would like to highlight the Bower Family and Chris Davis!

During our All Abilities Birthday Bash Colleen, Jaime, and Bill Bowers and Chris Davis went over and beyond the call of duty to make sure every family received a warm reception and embodied the TELIC Way of teaching, empowering, listening, including, and caring for underserved special needs families with attentiveness, compassion, kindness, and respect! We are so thankful that they chose our organization for their volunteering experiences and hope they will continue to serve families with youth and young adults with special needs with us in the future!
