Adhoc & Regular Volunteers needed for MINDS Me Too! Club

Me Too! Club Adhoc Volunteers

Me Too! Club is a programme to enhance the social integration of people with intellectual disabilities (PWIDs) through leisure and befriending activities. It is best suited for PWIDs who cannot participate in community-based services due to health reasons and/or other reasons or would prefer a less intensive programme. You can read more about the programme here: http://www.minds.org.sg/MeTooClub.html

Description of Roles

  • Join Me Too! Club’s weekday activities at least once a month. Each activity spans for 2-3 hours in the afternoons on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
  • Plan and/or execute activities for adults with intellectual disabilities i.e. art and craft, sports, gardening, bowling, swimming, etc.
  • Attend volunteer case reviews once every 3 months, to discuss about the progress of clients and how to better support them

Points to Note

A volunteer orientation and trainings will be given to new volunteers to help them better understand and learn how to interact with adults with intellectual disabilities.
