Do you want to be part of an organization that is making a difference in the lives of people living with Down syndrome? If so, we want to hear from you!


Throughout the past 30 years, life has improved for people with Down syndrome. Many enjoy an increased lifespan, benefit from therapies and inclusion in school and community, and daily realize new opportunities of independence. The last 10 years have seen a significant increase in momentum in Down syndrome research, but too many of the community’s medical and therapeutic needs continue to go unmet.

LuMind IDSC is seeking an organized, self-starter professional to oversee and help advance the organization’s operations. LuMind IDSC envisions a world where every person with Down syndrome thrives with improved health, independence, and opportunities to reach their fullest potential. We accelerate Down syndrome research to increase availability of therapeutic, diagnostic, and medical care options and we empower... families through education, connections, and support.
