ARISE relies on the energy and talent of volunteers to help us accomplish all that we do. Our dedicated volunteers are instrumental as we advocate for the interests of nearly 3,000 people with disabilities and their families each year. With your support, we can help even more people live independently, and can make a greater impact on societal attitudes and government policies.

Volunteering is a great way to give back to your community and to grow personally and professionally. We have a variety of volunteer positions that will appeal to different interests, including:
