If you have the time, talent, and desire to work with children or adults with developmental disabilities, Clelian Heights welcomes volunteers of all kinds to enhance our programs, improve our facilities or provide activities. Individuals, school groups, scouting troops, community organizations and employee community relations programs have all helped Clelian Heights. The time you spend with us can vary–one hour or one day a week or whatever you choose depending upon the needs of the school and your desire to be a part of our mission.
Volunteers have led classroom craft activities, assisted one-on-one with math or reading or other academic skills, taught cooking classes to adult residents, been involved in recreational or work activites, painted playground equipment, helped with olympics practices, assisted with mailings and office activities, weeded landscaping, assisted in many ways with fundraising events and so much more!
If you or members of your group or organization would like to volunteer at Clelian Heights please fill out an application. Once completed, you may e-mail the application and other required information to the Director of Human Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org or send it to: Lori Kovaks, HR Director; 135 Clelian Heights Ln; Greensburg, PA 15601.
