Do you have a desire to give back to the community but limited time to dedicate to training and an ongoing commitment? Then sign up for Volunteers for Change!
Volunteers for Change provides flexible weekend and evening volunteer opportunities for active, civically engaged adults (and young adults!) who have a desire to serve. The program offers over 60 opportunities to serve each month, with projects as diverse as packing emergency food kits for families in crisis, ushering at regional venues such as the Library of Congress, throwing birthday parties for underserved children living in a shelter, and removing invasive vines so native plants can thrive. Projects take place in the evenings or on weekends and last from one to four hours. The only training required to get started is a one-time, one-hour orientation. These are held monthly at the Volunteer Fairfax office in the City of Fairfax.
If you are interested in becoming a member, please visit the Community Calendar for upcoming orientation dates, and register online.
The Volunteers for Change program is a great way for volunteers to meet new people and become better connected to the community. Make a difference today by joining this corps of dedicated volunteers! You may also contact Elaine Lydick, Interim Volunteers for Change Program Coordinator, to learn more.
Please note: you may not use the Volunteers for Change program in order to complete service hours for the Courts. For information on how to complete pre-trial or court ordered service, please visit our Alternative Community Service Program page.
