At HKNC headquarters in Sands Point, you can participate in recreational activities with people who are DeafBlind. The options range from collaborating on arts and crafts projects and making music together to playing games, going to parties in the residence lounge and working out at the gym. Volunteers also accompany participants on outings in the community, including shopping excursions, eating at restaurants, attending church or worship activities, hiking trails and visiting New York City attractions. At HKSB’s Brooklyn location, you can support individuals with reading mail and assisting with our book club. In Hempstead and Islandia, volunteers help with transportation, accompanying individuals to medical appointments and other outings.
During your volunteer work, you’ll build new skills, and you’ll have the opportunity to work with people of diverse cultural and communication backgrounds.
HKS’ comprehensive training programs encompass a broad range of activities, projects and settings, providing a wealth of opportunities for you to do work that matches your skills and interests.
