“One is not born into the world to do everything, but to do something.”

– Henry David Thoreau


Volunteers at NSSEO are an important part of our schools and programs.

Our work with students requires many hands and many skills. Opportunities to touch the lives of children, parents and staff are available through a variety
of activities, and require a range of time commitments and talents. You need not have experience in education or with students with disabilities. You may choose
to work with primary, intermediate or secondary/post secondary students; or you may prefer to work in areas that have no contact with students at all.
