Throughout the year, the MDSC needs volunteers for a variety of projects and events. Without volunteers generously donating their time, energy, and passion, we would not be able to make the difference we do in the lives of thousands of people with Down syndrome statewide. Please consider volunteering your own talents and enthusiasm for a worthy cause.

Volunteers are always needed for our AIM: Teen and Young Adult Program. AIM meets once per month throughout the school year at the YMCA in Newton and at various locations throughout Eastern MA for fun, inclusive and interactive events. Learn more about AIM here, and if you're interested in volunteering as a peer mentor within the program please email us at

It began as required disability awareness hours for school, but I kept doing it after the requirement was over because I really enjoyed the spirit of the group. I have learned so much!

This is a wonderful organization. I have gained AT LEAST as much as I have given. Thank you.
