Cooking Class

This class teaches individuals with developmental disabilities learn how to cook. The class begins by sharing facts about the country where the meal is from. Then, the individuals prepare and cook the meals. We will need 1-2 volunteers to be a helping hand and assist with the learning and cooking process.

Adopt A Home

We are looking for volunteers to share a monthly meal or celebrate holidays with the individuals that we serve at their home.  

  

Volunteer Soccer Team

We are looking for a volunteer who plays soccer or a team to volunteer with Jubilee. Jubilee Association of Maryland, Inc. has numerous adults with developmental disabilities who would like to kick the ball around with you or your team.  

  

Landscaping

We are looking for volunteers to help beautify the landscaping around a house shared by numerous adults with developmental disabilities. Volunteers will spend time trimming, weeding, mulching and planting flowers around a group home. Jubilee Association of Maryland, Inc. can provide all the tools necessary.  

  

Clean-A-Thon

We are looking for volunteers to spend a day cleaning one of our community-based residences. Our houses provide warmth for adults with developmental disabilities. We are looking for volunteers to wash windows, clean carpets, rake leaves, put down mulch, wash the residence’s vehicle and even shovel snow, (depending upon the weather).  

  

Casserole Preparation

We are looking for volunteers to help prepare casseroles in foil pans so that they can then be frozen and reheated. The casseroles are distributed to group homes to allow staff to spend more time with individuals, with developmental disabilities, and less time preparing meals. Casseroles are also shared with individuals living on their own so that they may have a hot meal that they can easily prepare.  

  

Additionally, depending on the student’s personal interest, I may be able to tailor a volunteer assignment to help them fulfill their service learning hours.
