Here are some of our upcoming trainings!

Attention Arc Families, Parents, Guardians, & Professionals:

What Is Social Capital and How Can You Help Your Child Build This Useful Practice?

“What do people want out of life? They want a sense of belonging, to be respected, to be able to make choices, to contribute to the welfare of the community and to share places with others.” (John O’Brien 1987).  The Arc of Chester County will be providing two parent workshops and networking opportunities.  These trainings are FREE. Come network with other parents as you learn how Social Capital can teach you to bond, bridge, and link!
