Be the change

Your voice, your perspective, your ideas can make a difference.

At The Arc of King County, we teach civic engagement and leadership skills and connect people to opportunities so they can be the change they want to see.

Our approach

We use a steps-to-inclusion framework, helping people move from being concerned about something, to being able to assess who to contact, what to ask for and how to influence. This involves a mix of engagement opportunities and issue education through newsletter, social media, and workshops.

If you want to influence, you need to understand what is going on and feel confidant using your voice.
