Last year, 850 Volunteer for Change members supported 731 different projects, donating almost 7,000 service hours. This program allows busy professionals, parents, students and retirees to squeeze a little service into their daily lives and, together, to have an extraordinary impact. Join us for a one-hour orientation on April 30th and gain access to 55+ projects each month.
Over the past year, RSVP - Northern Virginia has engaged more than 200 individuals - aged 55 and better - in over 2,000 hours of meaningful volunteer service. Be a part of this great partnership between Volunteer Fairfax, Volunteer Arlington, and Volunteer Alexandria and join this community of older adults with a passion for service: attend an orientation today!
One example of the great things that can come out of strong partnerships is Connect Northern Virginia, a new online tool that addresses community issues by making information and resources more accessible to all. The idea for Connect is not to duplicate, but to coordinate and build on the many resources already in the community, a great example of what can happen when leaders from the nonprofit, corporate, education, and government space all come together.
