As in any non-profit organization, volunteers play a significant role in the success of SMILES CIL.

To view current volunteer opportunities as SMILES click here: VOLUNTEER

Volunteers serve as peer mentors, senior companions, clerical staff, and wheelchair ramp builders.  They help with a wide variety of recreational events and leisure act ivies annually.  Some also serve on our speakers bureau and make themselves available for speaking engagements to a variety of groups, agencies, and organizations about a range of disability awareness topics.

In addition to the volunteers who help with programs and services, many serve as members of our board of directors or help with fund raising and disability awareness events.  Volunteers serve on planning committees and work teams often donating services, funds, or valuable time in an effort to provide a quality center for independent living to the diverse community it serves.

Many of the programs and services we offer simply would not be possible without these dedicated and kind people. Our sincere thank you is extended to each and everyone of you!
