Volunteer Opportunities

  • Guest Writer/Blogger for our Quarterly Newlsetter
  • Do you have a disability and experiences, perspectives or insights that you want to share? We want to hear from YOU! You don’t have to be a skilled writer to share your thoughts with us! It’s important for those in our community to hear first-hand, the interests, needs, and perspectives of people with disabilities as they pursue their rights to independence, accessibility and inclusion in our communities. Interested? Contact Amy Ballinger at 785-841-033 ext. 119 or aballinger@independenceinc.org
  • Volunteer Peer Counselor

Individuals with disabilities who have gained knowledge and coping skills assist others in coping with their disability-related experiences. Trained volunteer counselors provide information, resource referral, emotional support and training. If you wish to become a Volunteer Peer Counselor, or for more information, call or email Bob Mikesic 841-0333, ext. 107 (temporary contact until Peer Counseling Specialist position is filled)
