Group Volunteers: Building Community Through Team Unity

 

Community Connections Program:

In the Community Connections Program, you will positively impact the social development and academic achievement of individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities.

Community Connections consists of fun conversations and video chats or phone calls that support and guide your partner through hobbies, goals, career advice, and more. Your relationship with your partner is a vital part of their social growth and positive mental health.

Community Connection Partners are matched based on interest
compatibility, and the commitment involves a one-on-one video chat or phone call at least once a week for 30 minutes, with an 8-week commitment.

 

Team Building Opportunities:

As part of The Arc of the Capital Area’s post-secondary education program, we assist with career development.  We currently offer painting parties in which groups of up to 30 can come to the studio or schedule a party at your location. By engaging in a CreateABILITY painting party, participants create a unique piece of art, taught with step-by-step instructions by one of our talented art students. These fun painting parties allow you to leave with a one-of-a-kind painting created by you, and provides a paid opportunity for our students to build their resume. Rate is $35 per person and with a 50% deposit two weeks ahead of scheduled date.

Trivia Event

For a donation of $50 per individual or $200 for a team of up to 8 participants, you can challenge your Silicon cohorts to an evening of family-friendly fun! This virtual interactive trivia night will be hosted by Austin Fashion Week founder Matt Swinney and feature several categories of trivia questions in categories ranging from World Geography to Modern Olympics to Pop Culture and everything in-between. Prizes will be awarded to the winning individual and team. [NOTE: we would need a minimum of 15 teams, or an equivalent combination of teams and individuals].
