Social and Civic Engagement

Service is both a privilege and an opportunity. It’s a time to demonstrate one’s character and to build it. It’s a way to find one’s passions and employ them for the greatest good. It’s a means to develop one’s skills and assert them benevolently. Service is the place where the deepest callings of the individual meet the deepest needs of the community.

The Tarjan Center Service Inclusion Project strives to make service and volunteerism equally accessible to people with and without disabilities. If you’re looking to include volunteers with disabilities, you’ll find help here.  Discover inspiration in our Success Stories. Go to our FAQ page, and learn best practices for including people with disabilities in service and volunteerism. Identify California-based helpful resources in our Resources section.

Whether you are an individual with a disability seeking to serve, a volunteer program hoping to engage more volunteers with disabilities, or simply an ally of service inclusion, we invite you to explore our site.
