Adult Enrichment Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are an important part of the UDS Adult Enrichment program. Our volunteer teachers enable UDS to offer specialized classes such as knitting, computer skills, music and Bible study. Some of our volunteers have been with us over 10 years, but we always welcome new people to come join us.

If you have a special skill or talent to share and you’d like to make a difference in the lives of others, we’d love to talk to you. Consider being an Arts and Crafts Volunteer, a Budget Class Instructor, a Literacy Instructor or Homework Volunteer, a Lunch Helper, a Mobility Training Volunteer, a Needlework Volunteer, or a Special Events Volunteer.
