Volunteer with Us

We rely on volunteers to help provide safe and enjoyable activities to our clients. We would love to have you join us!

The Arc of Greater Williamsburg provides an average of 8,800 hours of program time for our members and respite time for their families and caregivers with the support of more than 1,600 volunteers each year. 


Upon arrival, staff member/event coordinator will provide necessary information and direction for successful implementation of activity/event.  Arc staff will be available throughout event to answer questions and provide additional guidance.

Clients and volunteers around a table playing cards. Smiles all around.

Most volunteer opportunities last 1-3 hours. Volunteers can help in a variety of ways:

  • Help escort clients safely in and out of the building

  • Assist with client check-in

  • Engage in the activity (e.g. exercise, crafts, etc.) alongside the clients

  • Distribute and collect name tags

  • Provide a positive, friendly, helpful, and trustworthy presence

  • Serve as mentors and role models

I love volunteering with the Arc because we have truly become family in the few years that I have been going. The relationships that you build with the clients and staff are long-lasting and everyone honestly is a joy to be around. The Arc is a wonderful organization to be a part of and even if you could come out once a month, you could make a difference in a lot of lives!
