Join our “Ambassadors of Fun”

St. Louis Arc volunteers are great examples of our core values – Respect, Collaboration, and Empowerment – and have been dubbed our “ambassadors of fun.”  Our volunteers include recent retirees who are looking to stay active, college students exploring potential career paths, families who want to learn more about their communities, and corporate groups giving back to the region.

How do I become a volunteer?

The St. Louis Arc Volunteer Coordinator works with individuals to assist them in completing the new volunteer process.  This simple process can usually be completed within 1-2 weeks.

volunteeringWhat is my commitment?

The volunteer commitment is different for everyone. We have individual volunteers who have been volunteering for over 20 years across different programs and some group volunteers who come once a year. The commitment depends on the program the volunteer chooses. We have weekly, monthly, and one-time opportunities available.
