Volunteer opportunities are abundant at The Arc. Anyone can volunteer and we invite parents, students, professionals and anyone else who like to get involved to share some of their time with individuals with disabilities. There are many ways that you can help out! These are just a few examples of the types of volunteer opportunities available:
• Social and recreational activities
• Teaching classes such as art, sign language, exercise and crafts
• Landscaping/yard work
