Making Volunteer Opportunities Inclusive

When volunteer opportunities are inclusive, it is easier for people of all abilities to volunteer throughout their lifespans and you make your organization more effective because you have diverse perspectives and talents to pursue your mission. Disability can be experienced by anyone at any time and it is experienced differently by everyone.
