Camp Horizon Volunteer Interest Form
Thank you so much for your interest in becoming a Camp Horizon Volunteer with the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Charlotte (DSA-GC)! We cannot do what we do without our amazing community of volunteers, so we appreciate your consideration in joining this amazing group of supporters!
Being involved with the DSA-GC will not only expose you to the many abilities of individuals with Down syndrome and the value of embracing an inclusive society where we can all live together and learn from each other, but also help you become a more courageous, accepting, compassionate and community-minded person.
Volunteers who are involved with our organization are inspired and energized by their experiences.
The DSA-GC partners with hundreds of volunteers each year to make our programs and services a success. Please sign up below to be notified when volunteer opportunities are available.
