Community involvement is central to our work here at Paraquad. We believe everyone benefits through the full integration of people with and without disabilities. That’s why we offer multiple ways for people to get involved at Paraquad — by working directly with our participants, supporting our fundraising efforts or learning more about the issues that matter to people with disabilities.


Paraquad volunteers work directly with participants, including with youths, in educational or mentoring roles, or in support roles. See our current volunteer openings.

Schedule a Speaker

From elementary schools to business board rooms, Paraquad speakers can address a wide variety of audiences with specially tailored presentations. Learn more about our presentations or schedule a speaker.

Young Professionals Network

In addition to helping further Paraquad’s mission of empowering people with disabilities, members of the Young Professionals Network are provided with opportunities for professional growth and networking.


Paraquad is a great place for students to gain valuable professional experience while also learning about independent living for people with disabilities.
