Advocacy and Programs for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities: EMPOWERMENT… INNOVATION… INCLUSION. The Arc of Greensboro is an organization of and for people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) and their families, promoting and protecting their human rights and actively supporting their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes.
Program Areas are grouped throughout the site by these colors:
Challenger Sports LeagueThe success of the Greensboro Challenger League reflects an extraordinary collaboration of parents and community organizations. Parents dedicate their time and energies to coach and support their children. The Greensboro Department of Parks & Recreation arranges access to a baseball field on Saturday mornings during the spring and fall as well as a gymnasium for adaptive basketball during the winter. Particpants also enjoy bowling on Saturday afternoons during the winter. The Greensboro Grasshoppers kick off the spring Challenger season with a baseball practice clinic at NewBridge Bank Park.
Since 1990, The Arc of Greensboro has offered vocational guidance and supported employment for the region’s working-age adults with intellectual disabilities. An essential component of those services is reshaping public policy to expand employment opportunities for people with intellectual and/or physical limitations or disabilities.
Advocacy groups offer participants opportunities to be actively involved in decisions that affect their lives. Monthly meetings include discussion about voting, legislature, and other relevant topics that directly impact individuals with I/DD.
