  • Entertain and educate a group with your own special talents in music, art, or singing.

  • Make it the best summer ever at Camp Lakeside.

  • Help keep our grounds beautiful with landscaping.

  • Apply your hair styling and makeup talents to help prepare for big events.

  • Lend a hand with administrative duties.

  • Support our fundraising events.

  • Join the inclusive workforce at Do Goodies to package items.

Help us find the best fit for you within our organization by completing our Volunteer Interest Form! Once we receive your information, we will invite you for a tour and determine, together, a volunteer opportunity that suits both you and OE. We want your volunteer service to be a successful and meaningful experience!

“The clients have made volunteering such a happy experience for me. When you volunteer, you become a friend. You’ll quickly find out that you have a lot of things in common with everyone and that bond you create with the clients is indescribable. Because of OE, I’ve learned to always be happy and to always give your best every day when you work with amazing people.” 
 

–Doug, Volunteer since 2009

Doug’s connection to OE began with his daughter Jennifer, who receives Respite services. He has been volunteering at Opportunity Enterprises for more than 10 years and is considered a valuable member of the OE Family.

Every Friday, Doug spends the day with amazing people and has made a special connection with Keith, one of OE’s clients . Keith looks forward to having Doug around, and his smile says it all. For Doug, every day he volunteers is a new experience with new memories.
