Voluntarism creates job satisfaction, without the strict mandate of employment.
Southside Art Center believes that people with Developmental Disabilities
do extremely well, when learning in natural environments. All of our work is done at volunteer sites, such as Red Cross, Food Link,
City Cemetery, Food Bank, and we are continuing to add new volunteer work sites all the time. Voluntarism creates job satisfaction,
without the strict mandate of employment. Creating their own schedule, and a variety of job choices, makes for productive and
empowered workers. It allows for a career chose for those individuals who want flexibility, and variety in their job schedules.
