Interested in Helping Out?

We are very excited that you have chosen our agency to dedicate your extra time to volunteer! We are a premier agency and look forward to working with excellent volunteers. We ask that you fill out the volunteer application to help us find the perfect place for you!

If you are over the age 18, you must visit the main office at The Arc for your background check paperwork. Please bring a photo ID with you.

We do require that all of our volunteers are trained before they take on a volunteer position. The department supervisor will give you general training on the job duties and assist with the active roles you will play as a volunteer for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. You may attend our monthly training for CPR/First Aid, Intellectual Disabilities Waiver, Human Rights, OSHA, and of course an Orientation Training to familiarize you with our agency.

We want this to be a positive, enriching, and fun experience for you! If at any time you have questions, please do not hesitate to call Joy Ocetnik, Recreation Director at (703) 670-4800.
