My 10 year old twins are currently volunteering by participating in Easter Seals summer social skills class. While they are "typically developing" boys their role is to work on specific social skills through fun activities accompanied by play. I am finding this experience is invaluable to my boys. Not only are my boys having fun and meeting new friends, but they are serving as a positive peer support role models. This experience is teaching them to give back to their community, how to be more compassionate and understanding of individuals with special needs and is helping them growing their skills as positive leaders and role models. As a parent it is not only exciting to hear from the instructors they did well, but to hear from the boys who are volunteering that they are excited for their next class and cannot wait to see their new friends! Thank you Easter Seals for the opportunity for my boys to grow through serving their community, meeting new friends and helping their peers grow through fun activities.
