Call for Student Involvement

Call for student involvement in an ARCA sponsored program!

One of ARCA’s goals is to assist in the professional development of rehabilitation counselors. As advocacy work is an essential component of one’s professional identity, the American Rehabilitation Counseling Association (ARCA) is very interested in engaging students and contributing to their development as rehabilitation counselors. Accordingly, we have developed a program that we call Understanding Rehabilitation Counseling as a way of encouraging students to learn more about their chosen profession by becoming involved in their local community through a rehabilitation or disability-related project. Therefore, this program is a great opportunity for you to do the following: 1) apply what you have learned, 2) learn more about current issues/needs first-hand, 3) develop new skills though collaborative community service, 4)share your advocacy experience with the rehabilitation counseling community through an ARCA event at the 2017 ACA conference (some of your conference expenses will be reimbursed), receive a certificate award, and a feature in ARCA’s Spring newsletter.

Selected RCT programs will receive a reimbursement to cover up to $800 of the conference expenses for their student representative(s) to attend the ACA conference in San Francisco, March 16-19, 2017.
