Volunteer Opportunities

Current Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Remote Volunteer

    Connect with people we support via Zoom to teach them new skills, play games, read stories, or create socializing opportunities.

  • Photographer

    Take pictures of people we serve in the Frederick community. We'd love to use the photos on our website, publications, or other materials for The Arc.

  • 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.

  • Sibshops

    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. Volunteers are asked to contribute and participate to the various activities that are held during the workshop.

  • Transportation needed

    We are seeking volunteers for some weekend social events ranging from once a month to more, depending on your availability. Many people we serve rely on public transportation and this is not always available on the weekends or at an affordable cost.

For more information and a volunteer application, contact Shauna at The Arc: 301-663-0909 x140.
