We got the following email this week. A great volunteering opportunity for those who would like to work with people with disabilities and whose walls are cluttered with images of Michael Jordan.
My name is Eliza Wooden, I currently run an Inclusive Basketball Program, for people with disabilities at Pasadena Sports Centre. I am looking for some keen students who might be interested in participating and helping out as coaches, or support.
Currently the program runs every Monday night (school terms) at 5pm till 7pm, with 15 teams and over 120 players. We are coming to the end of the Autumn season, and the next season starts on Monday the 23rd of July.
I believe it might be beneficial for students in your university, to prepare and offer some real life experience, working with people with disabilities of all severities. This is a Volunteer role but I myself have benefited immensely from this program and the people involved.
Please do not hesitate to pass on my email or mobile number, for any questions.
