The Curator position is a groundbreaking new role for the social sector. Tired of the staid and too often stigmatizing activities on offer for people with developmental disabilities, we’ve created a catalogue full of novel and offbeat learning experiences. But, here’s the best part. All of our learning experiences are hosted by wonderful locals – students, retirees, curious citizens, and business owners – in homes, workplaces & public spaces. As one of our Curators, you’ll hit the ground to meet and recruit people with developmental disabilities and community members. You’ll identify people’s interests, and coach them to share those interests in one-hour, in-person exchanges. It’s a volunteer experience we want to be unlike any other. You’ll help to transform volunteering into an easy, on-demand, passion-led pursuit. To keep host energy and momentum up, you’ll have superb follow through and a hefty dose of creativity. You’ll join our team of other creative souls whose only limits are what we can imagine and make happen.
