Volunteer Opportunities

Teen Sidekicks Programsidekicks
Teen Sidekicks are truly committed to and enjoy working closely with special needs students: befriending them, sharing lunch and activities, or helping them successfully integrate into mainstream programs.

Sidekick applicants are required to fill out an application listing their interests and hobbies, availability, and experience. Selected Summer Sidekicks attend a 2-hour orientation training to learn about special needs in general and the basic principles of behavior management.

Each Sidekick is paired with a camper with neurodiverse needs. Sidekicks will meet with their camper buddy and parents before camp to better understand the child's needs and together they attend one of PRD's summer camps, create lasting memories, and have the time of their lives. Volunteers may be eligible to receive a letter of recommendation.

Ages 15+  Community Service hours available upon request
