Volunteer Hours for High School Students

Posted on Thursday, November 8, 2018 at 1:14 am

The Central Florida Dreamplex is seeking current freshman, sophomore, and junior level high school students for its StarGazers volunteer program.
The Dreamplex is a fitness and recreation center for children and adults with physical and/or intellectual disabilities. A group of 15-20 volunteers will be chosen to be StarGazers, and the program will span one year (January-December, 2019) and result in at least 100 community service hours for each participant. Training will be provided at no cost to the volunteer, and those who complete the program will receive a letter of recommendation from the Executive Director of the Dreamplex.
The ideal candidate will be an individual who loves to work with children and has a fun and outgoing personality. This is a perfect opportunity for those interested in therapeutic services, special education, or other related fields as a career choice. Those chosen to be StarGazers will assist with Dreamplex sports and recreational programs, and will have the opportunity to shadow physical, speech, and occupational therapists. An application can be requested via email to cgomes@cfldreamplex.com. Completed applications may be returned via email or dropped off at the Dreamplex, located in the Clermont Hillside Terrace complex (same building as Graffiti Junktion) Applications are due by November 2nd. Contact Cameron Gomes at (352) 404-4085 with questions about the program.
