Do you have a skill to teach?

NuPath Inc. is looking for volunteers to teach classes to adults living with developmental disabilities.  This is a great opportunity to share your talent with others and make a difference in the lives of the individuals we serve.  Examples of classes needed are: photography, painting, money management, computer skills, cooking, etc. (the sky is the limit!)

Classes can be held during weekdays, evenings, or weekends depending on the volunteer’s schedule.  Although availability for multiple classes is preferred, we will gladly accommodate a volunteer who want to teach a one-time class.

For more information, contact NuPath Inc. at (781)935-7057 ext.3092.
