Luminaries is The Arc Baltimore’s young professionals network that encourages young leaders (and those young at heart) to make an impact, connect with like-minded peers, network with industry leaders, and gain a new perspective on the mission of The Arc Baltimore and disabilities. Consider joining today!
The Arc Buddies:
Develop a friendship with an individual with a developmental disability that shares your interests. Your commitment is to communicate once a week, by phone, a note, a visit to their home, and eventually out into the community.
We need childcare volunteers during our Family Support Group meetings on the first Wednesday of the month and the third Thursday of the month from 6:30 pm-8:30 pm at 7215 York Rd. In addition, we need volunteers to support our Parents Day Out partnership with area churches.
Day and Employment Center Volunteer:
Share your time and talent with people with developmental disabilities at a day center, Monday through Friday, 9 am – 3 pm. Help someone learn about computers, learn a new activity or independent living skill, or just be good company.
Group/Corporate Volunteer Opportunities
The Arc Baltimore is happy to have your social/civic/religious/corporate group participate in one of our special events or we can create a volunteer opportunity to fit your group’s availability and needs. It may be house painting or putting in a garden bed at an Arc supported house or an ongoing program at one of our facilities doing something fun with people The Arc supports.
In addition, there are leadership opportunities through The Arc’s committees and our board of directors that can support corporate team building goals.
