One wonderful way to give back to your community is to volunteer. Via Services utilizes the talents and personal expertise of volunteers in a number of different disciplines and this allows us to leverage their time, talent and energy to support our mission. Each year we rely on the volunteer support of commercial artists and graphic designers, photographers, carpenters, chefs, computer experts, marketing professionals, accountants and many other skilled individuals to support our organization and programs. You will enjoy corporate team building experiences by volunteering with coworkers in a group activity, educational growth opportunities by qualifying for a student internship and the general personal reward you experience by giving of your individual time and expertise.

The heartfelt and selfless work by many volunteer groups can be seen throughout our programs. Joining together as a team with co-workers or fellow community service members can be a bonding and rewarding experience. Via Services has hosted many corporate and community groups including Boston Scientific, Timberland and Morgan Stanley at our Via West Campus to help prepare the facility for summer and winter sessions or to volunteer directly with the children and adults we serve by organizing special events. Please contact our Advancement Department at 408-243-7861 if you are interested in corporate or group volunteer opportunities to Via West.
There are countless opportunities to serve children and adults with disabilities at Via Services from working directly with individuals in our First Step Early Intervention and Via West programs to helping with administrative tasks at our corporate office. Many individuals offer their professional services as a way of contributing to Via Services. Our Board of Directors is made up of community volunteers who have experience in all areas of organizational management from fundraising and marketing to accounting and legal expertise. Please contact our Advancement Department at 408-243-7861 for more details on how you can make a difference in the lives of children and adults we serve.
Student Internship Opportunities
Via Services provides internship opportunities for students interested in working with individuals with disabilities and special needs. Our programs provide great opportunities to get “hands on” experience. Via works with the Arrupe Community Partners at Santa Clara University, offering students volunteer opportunities in our First Step Early Intervention Program. They work alongside our early childhood educators in Via’s early intervention classes. Students from various specialties like nursing, special education, adaptive physical education, and human services volunteer their time at Via West. If you are a student interested in working with Via Services, please contact our Advancement Department at 408-243-7861.
