Advocates in Action

Advocates in Action is a program for adults with Down syndrome ages 18 & up.  Throughout the year, the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati will offer volunteer opportunities for our adults with Down syndrome.  The goal is to spread awareness and give back to the community. 

If someone participates in THREE volunteer opportunities, they’ll get a t-shirt; if someone participates in FIVE volunteer opportunities, they’ll get recognized at a DSAGC event.
