Whether it's because your life has been directly affected by a disability to a loved one or you are simply looking to be part of a unique experience, volunteering at any of Makapo's programs or events can be a life changing experience.  

We are always looking for energetic, passionate volunteers to come out and join the fun.  Opportunities race from paddling to event setup to dog walking.   Employee groups are especially needed for our Engine Room Volunteer option.
