Seeking a Registered Nurse for our Human Rights Committee and
Seeking a Mental Health Clinician for our Human Rights Committee

According to the Department of Developmental Services regulations, service provider agencies, such as The Arc , shall have a Human Rights Committee that meets regularly to review and discuss the agency's efforts to affirm, promote and protect the human rights of each individual it supports.

The Arc of Plymouth and Upper Cape Cod is looking for a Registered Nurse to volunteer on our Human Rights Committee. We are also looking for a Mental Health Clinician to volunteer also. The commitment would be every other month, for roughly two hours at a time. We are fortunate to have a committed group of volunteers who are passionate about advocating for the human rights of those we support and would be grateful to have you on board!
