DISCOVER THE HEART OF A VOLUNTEER

Testimonials

My volunteer experience as a reading coach has become more than the original goals of the program. It is also an opportunity to share special time with a friend and go down a new path together every time we meet to read!

Lori Strahm
Retired community member

What a wonderful experience to share my love of art with artists in training. They are very eager to learn and we enjoy our time together. Everyone’s art is great and I have been amazed at the beautiful work we’ve been able to create.

DISCOVER YOUR POTENTIAL AS A VOLUNTEER

MV Advancements exists to help adults with developmental disabilities reach their full potential. Community members who volunteer in Yamhill, Polk or Marion counties can discover the immense personal enrichment that comes from working locally with our amazing clients.

SO MANY REASONS TO VOLUNTEER

College students, client parents and local service club professionals are perfect for this opportunity to make a difference. Students may receive course credit for sharing their expertise as a class; parents and service club members can participate in a wide range of group activities.

WHAT CAN YOU SHARE?

If you have a hidden talent that you’d like to share with our clients, we want to hear from you. Are you an engaging storyteller? Love to teach about healthy lifestyles? Got out-of-this-world organizational skills? MVA would love to put your gifts to work!

WE’RE HERE TO HELP

An MVA staff member is on site during all client activities, so volunteers have a resource for assistance if necessary. A background check is required to volunteer as well. Safety for all participants is important to us.

YOU’LL FIND JOY, TOO

Our clients are an inspiring group of adults who love to meet new people, discover fresh adventures and serve in their communities. Volunteers constantly tell us about the breadth of enjoyment they get from working in the MVA universe.

HELP IS NEEDED THROUGHOUT MVA

Even if you don’t work directly with MVA clients, there still are dozens of supportive tasks you could help with. Volunteer at our golf tournament or stuff envelopes in a fundraising drive. We appreciate all your talents and will put them to good use.
