The staff and participants were very nice to work with and made my time there enjoyable and rewarding.

As a volunteer I found all the management and staff personnel very helpful and nothing was left unclear to me as to what I needed to do. I spent the day helping and guiding the participants in what they were doing for their day program. I assisted staff with taking participants on public transport into the city for lunch and by private bus to the lake so that they could participate in sailing activities. I leaned that every participant was an individual requiring different forms of involvement in the community. To see these people enjoying their involvement in there various activities made me feel that I had achieved and contributed to their well-being. My co-workers were all helpful and knowledgeable and able to answer any questions that I had. The most enjoyable part of the job was to see on the faces of participants the reactions they were getting from personal interaction with the community.

Pros

To be trusted by these individals

Cons

I found there to be none

Working for Life Without Barriers was a privilege! Helping Young People, and People with Disabilities was both challenging and personally rewarding.

Each client has their own abilities, skills and attitude, so my job was to work with those attributes to firstly identify, then help them to achieve their goals. Some clients were very self-sufficient, others needed domestic assistance and some required more "personal" assistance.Serving people with disabilities is a very humbling, rewarding and empowering experience, which is difficult to describe to people who have not worked in the industry. This job taught me new levels of teamwork and leadership. Aspects of the work were, initially, challenging or even confronting for me at times but in overcoming those challenges, my appreciation for my blessings has increased exponentially!I found management very supportive. I particularly appreciated the regular training that was provided.It was great to work with people from such diverse backgrounds and perspectives but a common purpose.The hardest part of the job was overcoming my aversion to cleaning up other people's bodily secretions.The most enjoyable part of my work was being surrounded by people with a truly positive attitude in the face of profound challenges, helping clients experience and enjoy life to the maximum of their capacity, and helping people in the community to overcome their phobias and misconceptions about people with disabilities.

Pros

being surrounded by people with a positive attitude, both clients and colleagues. regular outings to top shelf entertainment.

Cons

the pay!
