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.

Volunteer

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

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.
