North East employs over 100 part-time staff during the year. Part-time staff are hired to work under the direction of a full-time staff member at each of our programs. While we would prefer to hire people with experience in the field of the developmentally disabled, we do provide on-the-job training for those without experience. North East staff are required to attend two in-service training sessions during the program year and are responsible for the information contained in our staff manual.
We offer programming to our children and adults during the evening and on weekends. We are able to offer a number of volunteer opportunities at Special Olympics training sites, at swim programs, as crafts assistants, conducting musical activities, serving as entertainers and anything you may be interested in doing.
Holiday Party in December
North East Gala
We welcome volunteers to serve on our Dinner Organizing Committee. Committee members obtain silent auction items, coordinate decorations and goodie bag give-aways, and assist in selling journal ads and sponsorships. Involvement with the dinner is fun and rewarding!
Create an Event
We welcome groups to identify an activity that they would like to provide for our participants…. a special party for Halloween, Valentines Day or Spring! We also are open to discussions about a fundraising event that may be of interest to you and offer you an opportunity to network with business associates. We are open to suggestions and we have plenty of ideas!!!!
We seek individuals with expertise in public relations to assist in the development of an agency video, newsletter, brochure etc. We have many short term projects that may be done by volunteers at home at their convenience.
Interns are welcome and encouraged to be a part of our agency. The diversity of programs offered as well as the varied ages and abilities of the people we serve offers an intern a valuable experience. Interns will be supervised by a full-time staff member who is a Certified Recreation Specialist by NCTRC. Your internship placement with North East will provide you with an opportunity to put theory to practice!
