Volunteeer with Easterseals Midwest

Because we are a nonprofit, we rely on public support to make our programs possible. Our volunteers come from every walk of life and include teachers, professionals, staff, program participants, families, students, law enforcement, church groups, and businesses. A variety of volunteer opportunities are available within our service area! Whether you are an individual, a family, or a company, you can help us build a better, more inclusive world for people with disabilities.

Here are some ways you can help

Special Events

Events are truly a special opportunity to rally in support of the Easterseals mission. Help run a fundraising auction, facilitate games for program participants and their families, or dish up some delicious BBQ! Your service brings joy and positivity to our community, and your heart will be filled. We are always looking for volunteers for our special events.

Internship/Practicum/Service Learning

Easterseals is dedicated to investing in our shared future. By providing educational and service opportunities, we are consciously building a culture of service. Are you a student in need of an internship or practicum? Does your fraternity or sorority want to give back to the community in meaningful ways? Contact us for more information on how to apply for an internship or to get your student group involved. Follow this link and select “Internships” under the menu header “Areas of Interest."


One of our biggest challenges is the lack of awareness around disabilities. Writing a letter to your local, state, or federal representatives, or joining in advocacy day at the capitol are just some examples of how you can have a major impact on the lives of people with different abilities.

Young Professionals

Engage, inspire, and empower young philanthropic professionals to support Easterseals. As a member of Young Professionals, you will have opportunities to volunteer, raise funds for Easterseals’ programs, and organize networking events to bring awareness to our mission.

Third-Party Fundraising

Third-party fundraising is a wonderful way to introduce new communities to Easterseals and expand the circle of support for individuals with developmental disabilities, including autism. Third-party fundraisers can be as complex as a golf tournament or as simple as a wine tasting party at home.
