Melodic Connections is looking for volunteers who want to help change a life this summer. When you volunteer at
“The Art of Being Social” summer camps, you will use music, art and drama to enrich the lives of students with special learning needs. Take some time this summer to meet new people, make new friends and use your creativity and compassion to make a difference.
Volunteers will work with board certified music therapists from Melodic Connections, certified art educators from Visionaries + Voices and certified drama educators from The Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati to help students with developmental disabilities enhance their social skills in a fun, creative and supportive environment.
Alexandra, used her art skills to make a difference in the lives of campers. Volunteers helped make 2015 the “summer of friends” for Lucy. 2016 was a life-changing summer for volunteers Grace and for Olivia.
