Volunteer Groups

Volunteer groups provide valuable support to our Facilities/Maintenance staff. Future planned projects that we would welcome help with include: painting various interior or exterior spaces, detailing fleet vehicles, mowing the lawn, mulching, weeding, raking, and reorganizing or cleaning out closets, basements, and sheds.


  • Volunteer groups should consist of 2-20 people who can follow instructions and work independently
  • All group members must be at least 16 years old
  • Groups typically volunteer for a one-time, 1-day event, or can choose to make volunteering a recurring event (once a week, once a month, etc.)
  • Groups are encouraged to carpool when possible, as parking space at NEADS can be limited

Groups should coordinate with the NEADS Campus Manager to set up a time to volunteer:

  • Groups are welcome to volunteer May 1st through December 1st
  • Best days for volunteering are weekdays, Monday through Friday. We regretfully cannot accommodate groups on Saturdays/Sundays at this time.
  • Hours to volunteer are between 9am and 3:30pm. Groups don’t have to volunteer for a full day, but should commit at least 3 hours of their time

All volunteers must be 16 years of age or older for insurance/liability purposes, and NEADS cannot make exceptions even if a parent/guardian chaperones. For minors under the age of 16, other ways to get involved with NEADS include:

  • Coordinating a supply drive: visit our wish list for our most needed items
  • Fundraising for NEADS, and which can include sponsoring a client, naming a puppy, or donating
  • Doing a school project or presentation about NEADS and Service Dog
