The Arc Events

Band Together

Join us on Friday, September 22, 2017 for a fun-filled day of community service as we package  70,000 neon bands at the South Florida Fairgrounds!

This event is open to volunteers of all ages-- it's perfect for companies, families, and students that need to get volunteer hours.

These packaged bands will be distributed throughout Palm Beach County during the month of October to highlight the employability of adults with developmental disabilities and celebrate National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). The Arc’s Career Transition Program (CTP) helps adults with developmental disabilities become more independent by building self-advocates, creating career opportunities, developing strong interpersonal and living skills and enhancing their opportunities to participate in community activities. NDEAM at work… Celebrating Abilities.
