We are always looking for professionals to donate their time and talents to The Arc.

Other unique skills which have been requested by our clients and staff are yoga classes, massage therapy and jewelry making. We are constantly growing our education and outreach program and encourage professionals to contact our volunteer office if they would like to lend their expertise to our programs.
