Volunteerism at The Arc Jefferson - St. Lawrence

 

Why Volunteer?

Volunteering gives people an opportunity to enrich the lives of others.  It also benefits, by allowing an experience to learn new things, make new friends, build lifelong connections, and most importantly…have fun while making a difference! 

 

Internships with The Arc Jefferson – St. Lawrence

Internships provide a way for students to gain valuable experience in their chosen field with a multitude of disciplines, including: Clinical, Non-Profit Management, Direct Support, Theater, Dance, Art, and more.  All internships are designed to benefit the individual we support, the agency, and the volunteer. Interns receive specialized training which is also helpful for job references and may qualify as their required internship. Internships do not ensure employment with the Agency, but may be used a stepping stone for the future.

 

UPDATE ON SERVICES FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES DURING PANDEMIC

I thought I would provide an update on what the organization is doing during this period of uncertainty related to COVID-19. Based on an Executive Order from Governor Cuomo, our preschool and day service programs are closed until at least the end of April. We continue to provide supports to families in St. Lawrence County with our Respite and Supplemental Day Habilitation services. If families in Jefferson County are in need of any supports, please contact our Qualified Intellectual Disabilities Professionals at 315-836-1333 and for St. Lawrence, if additional support is required; please call 315-379-9531. If you have any questions or concerns after business hours or on the weekends, you may call our Administrator on Duty at 315-778-4878.
