Your Talent 


DARTS Ambassadors

Ambassadors help educate the community on services and volunteer opportunities at DARTS. With only three informational meetings scheduled throughout the year, Ambassadors is a great way to take an in-depth look at DARTS.

Administrative Support

Bring your administrative expertise, organization niche, writing forte or other professional skills to the office team.


Your Time

Respite Visitor

In this program, individuals who provide 24 hour care for a loved one welcome a volunteer to receive a break. While the caregiver is away, the volunteer spends time providing company (perhaps engaging in a stimulating activity) and ensuring the elder family member is safe and comfortable.  Volunteers do not provide any hands-on care.

Outdoor Chores

Support an elder neighbor in your community by helping take care of their yard. Whether it’s summer lawn mowing or snow shoveling, keeping up with your neighbors builds community.

Learning Buddies

Learning Buddies pairs volunteers with elementary and middle school students across Dakota, Scott and Ramsey Counties for quality intergenerational mentoring in reading, math and study skills.
