Volunteer With Us!

Volunteering with the Friends is a special experience and we value every person who chooses to freely give their time to the Friends.

Fostering connections with the Friends and helping them to see their worth and live up to their true potential is the essence of what our volunteers do.

Volunteer opportunities at FLC generally fall between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday-Friday, though some opportunities with the Treat Truck and Social Club are available on evenings and weekends.

Our immersive Weekday Program provides morning and afternoon classes for Friends five days per week. Join the Friends in any number of classes as they build skills in self-advocacy, independence, and community inclusion.

*The Weekday Program includes classes in Performing and Visual Arts, Life Skills, and Service Learning.

Have a passion for the arts and helping Friends as they develop their voices and other means of self-expression? Join the Friends as they write, rehearse, and perform music and theatrical arts.

Performing Arts classes take place during our immersive Weekday Program and include some after hours events and performances.

*Theatrical experience welcome but not required!

Art is a universal language and many of the Friends find unique and creative ways to express themselves through visual art.

Classes in the art studio take place during our Weekday Program and may also include production of Friendmade Goods such as screen printed floursack towels and napkins, etc., and after hours events such as art shows and markets.

*Art experience welcome but not required – just a willingness to roll up your sleeves and (possibly) get your hands dirty.

Crowd surrounds the Treat Truck


The Friends’ Treat Truck is a busy social enterprise that is breaking down barriers for adults with disabilities by providing a dignified job training experience.

Join the Friends as they take the Treat Truck into the community and serve frozen treats at multiple booked events each week during the busy season.

*The Treat Truck operates 7 days per week and many opportunities occur outside of our Weekday Program hours.

Want to enjoy time with the Friends in a less structured environment where friendship-building and easy, fun activities abound? We offer multiple after-hours social outings for Friends looking to develop deeper friendships and peer relationships outside of our Weekday Program.

Opportunities include pizza and movie nights, bowling, hiking day-trips, or going to a local festival!

*Social Club activities typically occur on Tuesday evenings and Saturdays a few times per month.
