Why I volunteer at Cahoots.

“Before volunteering at Cahoots, I hadn’t experienced anything as amazing as this, it was a life-changing experience that brought so much laughter and joy but also challenged me and was unbelievably rewarding. The activities were so awesome and I had the chance to join in and have so much fun with everyone. I highly recommend Cahoots to anyone that is considering this, they were very supportive and accommodating to every volunteer. After camp, I felt so humbled but it has sparked my passion for working aside those with disabilities.” – Lucy
