The Down Syndrome Association of the Valley is seeking volunteers to assist with its fifth annual ICAN Shine Bike Camp at which individuals with a disability achieve the skill of riding a two-wheeled bicycle.
No experience working with individuals with a disability is needed. Volunteers, who can be high-school or college students, work with a partner as spotters for camp participants helping them gain confidence to achieve their goal of riding a bike.
The camp is June 11-15 at Glenwood Junior High School, 7635 Glenwood Ave., Boardman, with five 90-minute sessions from which to chose. Volunteers can work multiple sessions.
Session times are 9:30 to 10:45 a.m.; 11:05 a.m. to 12:20 p.m.; 1:30 to 2:45 p.m.; 3:05 to 4:20 p.m.; and 4:45 to 6 p.m.
For information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 330-726-3728.
