Director of Adult Advocacy

Are you our newest Director of Adult Advocacy?

You’re committed to protecting human and civil rights for all. You believe that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) should live self-directed lives and be valued and respected for who they are as individuals. You celebrate individuals in their entirety; abilities, disabilities, and all. You are an Advocate.

This position is perfect for you if:

  • You know empowering people can make a real, lasting difference
  • You believe in people’s right to choose their own path
  • You thrive in a self-directed work environment while being support by an excellent team
  • Your ideal work environment is positive and engaging
  • You are committed to the growth and learning of your professional team members

At The Arc, your person-centered values and skills will be put to use in many ways. 

You’ll join our collaborative Advocacy Team, supporting adults with IDD and appropriately involved family members/guardians to grow advocacy skills and help resolve challenges.  

Some of the ways you’ll do this are through:

  • supporting individuals with IDD to understand their rights and their options
  • creating and delivering proactive education and training
  • influencing systemic change through involvement in committees and other groups
  • working to change perceptions of people with IDD in our community
  • sharing your knowledge and experience through mentoring and supervising others
  • support Adult Advocates to grow and strengthen their advocacy skills through leadership, management, and coaching (LMC)

What makes The Arc different? To sum it up – it’s our Culture. Inside and out, we embody our Core Values. We rely on people being internally driven and taking initiative, and in support of that, we have a deep commitment to teamwork. As a team, we all work together to move the mission forward with open and honest communication that translates into collaborative action. The work is no doubt challenging, and you will grow personally and professionally, while having the freedom to problem-solve outside of the limitations of the “systems”.  

This is a full-time, exempt position with a starting salary of $60-62K and excellent benefits, including 100% paid health insurance for the employee and paid time off when The Arc is closed between 12/25 and 1/1 each year. All positions at The Arc are approximately 80% remote. Spanish language and cultural competency preferred.
