VOLUNTEER

What does it mean to be a Padraig's Place volunteer?

Volunteering with Padraig’s Place is a fun and rewarding experience that is a great way to give back to the community. Our organization could not exist without the support of our amazing volunteers. To keep the cost to our participants to a minimum we rely on volunteers to teach lessons, work as equipment technicians, meet and greet our students and their families.

 

Volunteers will work one-on-one and small groups with individuals with disabilities helping them participate in the skiing or snowboarding.  Not a day goes by that we don’t thank our lucky stars for this fantastic volunteers!

If you think Padraig's Place sounds like a program you would like to volunteer with, just sign up below and some will contact you shortly.
