Janet May and Maine Commission for Community Service Collaborate on Disability Inclusion Resources for Managers of Volunteers
Janet May, CCIDS’ Coordinator of Transition and Adults, recently collaborated with the Maine Commission for Community Service (MCCS) on a project to foster inclusive volunteer programs in the State. With funding support from the Corporation for National & Community Service, May updated an existing MCCS publication, Competencies for Managers of Volunteers (2008), to include disability inclusion resources in a number of critical areas such as inclusive recruitment, accommodations, orientation, adapting tasks and activities, matching volunteers with assignments, retention, and evaluation of volunteers with disabilities.
