AWA is grateful to have partnered with community and service-based organizations to provide valuable life and job skills to teens and adults with developmental disabilities.
What is the P.A.W.S. Program?
P.A.W.S. stands for People Achieving With Support, and that is exactly what AWA hopes to achieve with the P.A.W.S. Program. P.A.W.S. volunteers are teens and adults with developmental disabilities who are earning service hours while gaining job and life skills
At this time, AWA is at capacity with our P.A.W.S. groups. Thank you for your interest in the program and please check back to see when openings are available. If you have any questions, click below to reach our Volunteer Coordinator.
