We are excited to offer opportunities for individuals interested in volunteering their time to assist students with disabilities.  Volunteers often work directly with students providing class notes to students unable to take notes or assisting students in developing more effective study skills.  If you are interested in volunteering with the program, please contact Rosa Lane at 

Student Positions:

The Disabled Student Programs & Services office at American River College provides employment opportunities to students meeting certain qualifications (enrollment in at least 6 units & good academic standing) as needed by the program to provide services to disabled students.  

If you are interested in applying for a student position, you may bring a copy of your resume and a cover letter to our front counter.  We are not always hiring, and have a limited number of positions within the unit, however if we are not hiring, your resume and cover letter will be retained until our next round of hiring.  If you are selected for an interview, we will contact you to set up the appointment.

Employment of student employees in areas with access to student records is also conditional upon successful completion of a background check.
