A.R.I.S.E. provides this list as a service to the community and does not endorse any one organization, program or camp.


If you are between the ages of 12- 19 you can be a buddy and friend to a special child.

For example, if you would like to participate within a soccer program, you do not need any soccer experience to be a buddy. All you need is patience, enthusiasm, and a friendly smile. Usually you will work alongside a child with special needs for one hour each Saturday for about 10 weeks. Buddies will assist their special child in basic soccer skills, kicking, passing, running, dribbling, games and more. You will work one on one and guide them on the field under the direction of the head coach.

You will receive community service hours and a lifetime of memories for sharing your time.
