Become a member of The Arc’s Junior Board today and you will join a special group of young professionals under the age of 40 who invest in The Arc’s vision: people with intellectual and developmental disabilities will live the lives they choose as valued, contributing, and equal members of their community.

Help us grow, expand and increase our impact on the lives of the people served by The Arc. Our main goal is fundraising through our signature event, Shamrock Shindig, but we love to get hands-on and involved in mission activities as well. While most people served by The Arc do not have active family members or caregivers in their lives, they are blessed to be supported by generous and caring people like you.

New Member Applications

Acceptance of new members will occur each calendar year. Applications are received on a rolling basis and will be held until voting occurs, but they must be completed by August 6th to be considered for the following Junior Board year (September-May).

If you have any questions about the new member application, please contact Ashton Johnson.
