Interested in volunteering? Volunteers are an essential part of our organization! Without volunteers like you, the organization and the programs and services we offer would not exist. Come join us in spreading awareness, educating, and promoting inclusion and acceptance of people with Down syndrome in Central Texas. Please submit the DSACT Volunteer Registration form below if you are interested in volunteering with us. Volunteers must be 14 years and older (speech therapy volunteers must be at least 16 years old). We welcome volunteers in high school and college.

The broadest, and maybe the most meaningful definition of volunteering: Doing more than you have to because you want to, in a cause you consider good.
— Ivan Scheier

volunteer at the DSACT buddy walk

We need hundreds of volunteers for our Buddy Walk! Everything from unloading the van and setting up in the early morning to assisting with registration and activities throughout the day, to breaking down the event and loading the van back up - we need you!

We are especially in need of Spanish-speaking/bilingual volunteers. If you’re a bilingual volunteer, please use the button below, “Bilingual DSACT Buddy Walk Volunteer Registration” - thank you!
