Volunteering through the COVID-19 Pandemic

Here at The Arc Westchester we are proud of the efforts we’ve made to adjust during this Coronavirus Pandemic. It hasn’t been easy, and it’s far from over, but we are confident that will come out stronger on the other side. Especially with support from our community partners. That includes YOU, our amazing volunteers.

Since the beginning of this pandemic, we have been inspired by the resilience of our volunteers, as they continue to engage with our community through virtual and remote efforts. We encourage you to do the same, and make an impact!


To learn more about how you can get involved through remote volunteering, please reach out to our Director of Volunteer Services and Fund Development: Todd Bazzini at TBazzini@arcwestchester.org.

The Arc Westchester is on a mission to empower children, teens, and adults with developmental disabilities to achieve their potential by strengthening families and encouraging personal choices, abilities and interests.

Whether you share a love for music, dance, reading, arts, sports, movies, tutoring, fundraising or helping out at special events, your time and talents can make a difference in the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities.

Most volunteer assignments and opportunities will be tailored to your expertise and interests. We will provide the necessary training and supervision to make sure your experience is meaningful and rewarding. You will have the opportunity to engage directly with people who participate in The Arc Westchester programs.
