Volunteers are one of the essential building blocks of a successful nonprofit organization. Your dedication of time and talent helps improve the lives of children and adults with developmental disabilities. The Arc of the Capital Area’s volunteer opportunities are abundant, from coordinating events to working with clients at the art studio, providing office assistance, and more. We couldn’t do it without you!
