Youth Services


The Arc provides a variety of youth programs, all designed to help youth reach their full potential. JumpStart and ESTEAM provide after school, summer, and Saturday programs to keep kids and youth learning, engaged and having fun.


The Arc also helps connect parents to support professionals via its Community Connectors program. The Arc recruits and hires support professionals and then matches them with families so they can help support children and youth both at home and in the community.


In addition to supporting kids, The Arc also provides supports to families through Families Connected. Families Connected is one of ten family networks in the state of Oregon designed to help families in their journey of raising a child with special needs.
