Become a FCSN Volunteers

Volunteering at FCSN can be an enriching opportunity and a rewarding experience for all. In many cases, you get the chance to help people with disabilities; and you can really make a difference to someone’s life. Basically, there are two types of volunteers at FCSN: those who are high school students, and adult volunteers. Special arrangements can also be made for group volunteers.
