Down Home Ranch - Volunteer Opportunity
Friday, September 10, 2021 (1:00 PM - 4:00 PM) (CDT)
The Leadership Service Committee is excited to partner with Down Home Ranch for an afternoon of volunteering at their greenhouse helping with their 2021 crop of poinsettias!
Down Home Ranch is a working farm and ranch, founded in 1989 by parents of a young daughter born with Down syndrome four years prior. The Ranch is inspired by the writings and work of Henri Nouwen and Rudolf Steiner, and driven by the lack of resources available to adults with intellectual disabilities. Their mission is to empower the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities through social, educational, residential and vocational opportunities.
Pre-registration is required. Limited volunteer spots available. Volunteer spots are available to AYC Members only. If you're not an AYC Member, please email AYC staff at email@example.com.
This volunteer event will entail gardening activities. We ask that everyone come wearing the proper clothing to ensure a safe day at work and require that each volunteer wear loose fitting clothes, close toed shoes, and a water bottle and we always recommend a hat, bug spray and/or sunscreen for the outdoors.
In-Person Event Expectations for Attendees:
✅ Masks required for individuals when you cannot socially distance
✅ Wash or sanitize your hands frequently
✅ Greet each other with non-physical contact
✅ Maintain social distancing when possible
✅ The Austin Young Chamber reserves the right to update these protocols should City, County, and/or State guidelines change.
