Arc's PATH program provides mentoring to high school teens and young adults with disabilities for one hour a week for eight weeks to help them build communication skills and self-confidence.  

Community volunteers are needed to offer the program 
to more students.  Programs are supervised by Arc staff and complete training is provided.  This experience may qualify for credit or internship experience at area technical colleges and universities.
