Positive Maturity is committed to providing reasonable accommodations to volunteer applicants with disabilities, in accordance with federal and state laws. A reasonable accommodation enables a qualified individual with a disability equal opportunity to provide the same level of performance, enjoy equal benefits and receive equal privileges as a member who does not have a disability. Disclosure can happen from an informal conversation to a formal written request for an accommodation. It can also happen at any time during your term of service, from the interview to months after you begin serving.
