Get Involved

Current Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Volunteers for our monthly Parents' Day Out Program

    One Saturday per month, we provide 4 hours of respite time for parents and children. This is a great opportunity for teens, college students, and adults to help children with disabilities while having fun in a supervised setting. Organized group hosting activities such as, dance, theatre, or music, are welcome, as well.

  • Life Enrichment

    We encourage people to share their passions with the people we serve. If you have a special skills or hobby, volunteer to teach it to others. Life skills that you share with another, one to one or in a group setting, is appreciated.

  • One-to-One

    this opportunity consists of becoming involved in the life of someone we serve on a regular basis. You could go to the movies, shopping, library, or sight seeing. You could even just sit in the park enjoying each other’s company.

  • Fundraiser Event Volunteers

    Throughout the year we host fundraisers such as our Trivia Playoff for our services and programs. Volunteers are always needed to provide assistance.

  • Student Mentors

    The Arc partners with Rock Creek School to mentor students with disabilities every Thursday from 3:30-4:30 PM October through April. Volunteers provide recreational support to children with disabilities. It is asked that you make the year commitment upon your beginning date.

    The Arc of Frederick County provides a program for siblings of people with developmental disabilities. They are held one Saturday a month from 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM at The Arc at Market Street.
