We customize all group volunteer experiences to meet our needs and the needs of the group, and all group volunteers receive an on-site orientation immediately prior to their service.
The Arc welcomes student groups from local public, independent and parochial schools who would like to build a relationship with our agency! Opportunities for groups include assisting in our child care classrooms, as well as outdoor clean-up activities and other large-group activities. Generally we can accommodate approximately 10 students at a time. Preference is given to schools which have students who return to volunteer with The Arc independently for summers and special events, or to programs where the same students return for repeated volunteer service.
Adult groups are welcome to volunteer with The Arc and opportunities typically include outdoor clean-ups including landscape work, indoor maintenance including painting and small repairs. There are limited opportunities for groups to connect with the people we support, and adult groups may not volunteer in our children's programs due to state licensing requirements.
