The challenge of not having enough work experience makes volunteering opportunities attractive as they can provide people with Down syndrome with the step-by-step training and coaching they need to build confidence and find employment that suits their interests and skills.
The kind of work undertaken by people with Down syndrome varies from person to person.
From working as baristas in community coffee shops to taking positions in national chains, handling the front desk at offices, or working with their hands in the great outdoors, people with Down syndrome can thrive in a wide range of positions when they have the support, drive and skills they need to perform the job.
