Individuals who want to change the world-one life at a time. You don’t have to look like a hero, but you’ll feel like one. And you’ll really be one. And there’s no cape dry cleaning bill.
The Arc of Dauphin County, a non-profit grassroots organization that helps create a better life for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), is looking for Board members to help those in your community who need you. The work we do is aimed at providing a holistic approach to solving some of society’s biggest challenges. We make sure our consumers are empowered by creating opportunities for them where we all live.
One of the simplest ways to help is by becoming a board member. Being on our board gives you a voice and helps us with ours. We believe the best way for our initiatives to be successful is for the community to actively get involved.
You just need a loving heart and a willingness to give of yourself to help others. Everything else we can give you or teach you. Some skills that help are some knowledge of IDD, whether from career or personal experience; community outreach and affiliation or experience with charitable organizations; and general business knowledge.
