Arc to host Volunteer Open House

The Arc of Somerset County is hosting a Volunteer Open House on Saturday, April 4 from 10:00-4:00 at its main office in Manville. Individuals interested in learning about how they can volunteer with The Arc are encouraged to attend. Representatives from a variety of Arc programs including Residential, Employment, Childhood, and Support Services will be present to talk about various opportunities to volunteer with the disability population.

In addition to obtaining information about service learning and volunteer opportunities, attendees can learn about joining the Arc Junior Development Committee. This special group has been created specifically for college students or recent graduates to support The Arc by embracing its mission and helping promote its many programs and special events. Members will be involved in planning special events including the Step Up For The Arc Walk and the Arc Night at the Ballpark, promoting membership, increasing awareness about developmental disabilities, and raising The Arc’s profile in the community. Arc Junior Development Committee members can build their resume, gain valuable experience, and meet other individuals with a passion for community service while making a difference in the lives of people with developmental disabilities.

The Volunteer Open House will take place at The Arc of Somerset County office at 141 South Main Street, Manville, NJ. For additional information, please contact Tara Abbott, Assistant Director of Development, at 908-725-8544 x610 or via email at
