This program gives individuals the opportunity to explore and volunteer in their community. Lighthouse partners with many local non-profits where participants build community connections, assist others, grow their skills and experience the joy of giving through volunteering.
Three main objectives of Community Participation are:
- To provide community integration opportunities based on individuals’ interests
- To develop and sustain valued relationships with community members
- To provide volunteer opportunities that promote vocational skills development
We volunteer at over 16 area non-profits. Volunteering has led to many relationships with community members and businesses.
We currently have an internship with New Holland Grocery Outlet. Our internship contracts last 1 year and the participant goes once a week. Internships are a great way to gain job experience!
Individuals that volunteer and have internships with CPS gain job skills and independence to work towards competitive employment.
