Volunteers are critical to the success of our mission.

They work with our students in every aspect of Happy Headquarters to learn music, art, and dance. More importantly, they serve as mentors and friends to their partners with special needs. In each class, we encourage our volunteers to interact with students in a meaningful way to create lasting friendships.

Through the volunteer-student relationship, we have seen meaningful relationships form organically between new friends regardless of their level of ability.

"My daughter Shanna's first opportunity was the summer before her junior year. She came home after the first day of Happy Camp and told us she’d found her calling. Volunteering at Merrimack has been such a blessing for Shanna. Merrimack is a community treasure!"
