The Arc of the Capital Area is looking for volunteers to assist clients with intellectual and developmental disabilities in our Education Programs. This is a great opportunity for parents of school-aged children, and those who have free time during the work week, who are looking to participate in a fun and worthwhile cause.
Volunteers assist students by encouraging them, helping them stay on track and engaged, gathering supplies, socializing, and in some cases even physically guiding the hand of some of our less ambulatory or vision impaired clients.
The Education Programs are open Monday through Friday from 9am to 2pm.
We have two sets of classes - Adult Education and Art Education. Volunteers can sign up to help in their program of choice.
Adult Education classes are as follows:
Monday - Digital Literacy/Media (combined with Art classes this day)
Tuesday - Health & Wellness, including a walking club and healthy recipes
Wednesday - Urban Gardening in a community garden plot across the street
Thursday - Independent Living
Friday - Vocational Education
Art Education classes:
Monday - Digital Media arts
Tuesday - Performing arts, such as acting or singing
Wednesday - Friday - Visual arts, such as painting and drawing
We ask that volunteers commit to at least 1 shift per week for a 4 month period. Shifts are 9-11:30am, 12-2pm, or 9-2pm.
Feel free to contact Leah Marsden, Volunteer Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
We'll work with your schedule.
