Volunteer

We Need Your Help To Make Miracles Happen. 
The Miracle League of Southeastern Connecticut volunteers are the backbone of our organization.  There are many opportunities to get involved.  Whether you would like to become a Buddy to one of our players during team sports on the new field, help at our iCan Bike summer camp, or be a volunteer at one of our many other events, we would truly appreciate your help.

Volunteering for The Miracle League of Southeastern CT gives you the opportunity to become an active part of the community that you live in.  You may register as an individual or if you have a group (sports team, civic group, workplace or school group) we would love to have your help.  Volunteering as a group is a fantastic team building experience.  Many of our volunteers have conveyed to us that they get just as much if not more out of the experience than our players do.
 
Become A Miracle League Sports Field Buddy
The most hands on way is to become a Buddy Volunteer.  Buddies are folks who assist our players during our games one on one.  Buddies must be 12 years old and up. No real sports skills are necessary.  Once construction on the field has begun, we will be looking to sign up Buddy volunteers for our East Lyme Field sports programs that will be offered, so STAY TUNED and check back here for updates!  More information will be coming soon!

Become A Miracle League iCan Bike Volunteer
The Miracle League of Southeastern CT also runs the iCan Bike summer camp in East Lyme each summer.  iCan Bike is a program that helps children with special needs become independent riders on a two wheel bicycle.  iCan Bike volunteers must be at least 15 years old and be able to run alongside a bicycle rider for extended periods of time.  Our volunteers serve as spotters for each rider as they are learning to ride.  
 
We ask that our volunteers are available for the full week of camp because we like our riders to get to know their helpers well.  Trust is a very important part of this process and that can only be achieved through continuity.  The camp runs each day Monday-Friday each year normally in early August.  There are five 75 minute sessions each day.  You may volunteer for one session per day or as many as you like.  
 
Volunteers are provided with a shirt for the week that identifies them to the riders and we provide lunch from some of East Lyme's most generous local restaurants each day.  Come join us at the iCan Bike camp.  You will feel the same sense of accomplishment that our riders do.  It is truly an amazing experience. 
 
Become an Everybody Dance Now Volunteer
We need your help in order to make this program successful!
Everybody Dance Now is a NEW adaptive dance program.  The program is in collaboration with Studio 22 Dance located at 135 Boston Post Road in East Lyme.  The 8 week program will take place on Saturday mornings beginning on March 23rd and ending on May 18th (there will not be classes on Saturday April 20th). We will have Live Dance Showcase for our new dancers to show off all that they have learned on May 18th. 

Ideally we will have a volunteer helper for each of our dancers to help them as much or as little as needed. The volunteers will also participate in the Dancer Showcase alongside their dancers during the final week. There truly is no requirement that you are good dancer. All you need is some empathy and a willingness to help children with special needs to express themselves through dance. Volunteers must be at least 13 years old, and should be available for the full 8 week run of the program. We need volunteers in East Lyme!!!
