Community volunteers provide one-to-one assistance to children served in our All About Me program. This two-hour program operates very much like a typical preschool classroom. Children participate in circle time, snack time, art activities and music activities. The classroom is led by a team of professionals including an early childhood special educator, speech and language pathologist, occupational therapist and physical therapist. The classroom schedule and activities are therapeutic in design and promote growth and learning. However, children participating in the program are simply having fun participating in a preschool environment.
Community volunteers at The Bell Center commit to working with a child for 2 hours once a week. The experience of volunteering at The Bell Center is both meaningful and rewarding and our volunteers are vital to the success of our program.
