Details:

Goodwill Columbus is one of the largest charities in Central Ohio tackling workforce development, particularly for people with disabilities. The Young Adult Services program provides unique and varied opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities to become involved in the community. Through this rewarding program, participants gain self-respect, self-worth and the feeling that they are part of something meaningful. 

 

As a volunteer, your team will join the Young Adult Services participants and staff on a neighborhood walk through the Olentangy Trail to explore new wildlife and nature! Additional activities will include outdoor games. This event provides important socialization for their participants and allows individuals with mobility limitations an opportunity to experience nature, and the neighborhood. 

 

Please print, fill out, and email a signed copy of this waiver to Jackie Rose (JRose@express.com) no later than Tuesday, August 6th. Your cooperation will help streamline day of logistics and ensure we start on time.
