Volunteers needed for Understanding Our Differences

posted Dec 4, 2017, 7:20 AM by Hillary Stasonis

Understanding Our Differences (UOD) is a nationally recognized, educational program that teaches elementary school children to develop understanding and respect for fellow students and others with physical, sensory or developmental disabilities. Students in grade 3-5 at all elementary schools will participate in two programs this school year. Programs typically start with a 30 minute video or presentation about the disability, followed by 3-4 small group activities that run about an hour, and finish with a speaker and Q&A. We need volunteers to help with the small group activities. 

VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED for this special program! 

Your child does not need to be in the class to volunteer, anyone can!
  • There is a 20 minute online training session for all volunteers. 
  • Volunteers must have a current CORI on file with the elementary schools. Here is a link to the CORI form:
  • More Dates Coming Soon programs are scheduled for the entire school year. We post volunteer opportunities a couple of months in advance and will add new dates throughout the year.
