Welcome to Single Volunteers of DC (SVDC) - a great place to meet new people and help your community at the same time!

Who are SVDC Volunteers?

SVDCer's are an amazing group of dedicated, energetic and caring single professionals from the Metro DC area who are interested in devoting their time and energy to improving the quality of life in their communities through volunteer work.

SVDCer's are also some of the friendliest people in the Metro DC area, creating a large networking circle where there is unlimited potential for friendship, career development and, of course, romance.

What types of activities does SVDC participate?

SVDC only works with non-profit and not-for-profit organizations in activities where a group of people can easily work together. Examples are: beautifying our parks and waterways, march in a parade holding flags or balloons, assemble mailings, help with food distribution and/or preparation, and activities working with children, animals, and mentally and/or physically challenged persons. For a listing of upcoming events, click here.

SVDC also hosts a variety of social events, including a New Years' Eve Bash, Anti-Valentine's Day party and happy hours, to entertain members and provide another outlet to meet and mingle.

SVDC members are also encouraged to create activities, such as hikes or bike rides, theatre, concert or sporting event outings, and museum trips. For a listing of upcoming social events, click here.

How much does membership cost?

Nothing, zero, zip i.e. totally free!

What obligations are there to being a member?

The two primary obligations required of SVDC volunteers is that you only participate if you are single (i.e., available to date someone) and that you meet your commitment of attending all events for which you sign up.

We hope you'll join us in making a difference in the DC area and meeting some wonderful people! If you have any questions, please contact us.

United Nations International Day of Peace Celebrat


Location: 45519 Overmountain Square, Sterling, VA

Description: This event is a once a year event in Washington, DC celebrated on the United Nations International Day of Peace, September 21, 2013. This year's theme is: United Nations International Day of Peace, Peace on Earth: The Shift into Oneness, A Global Meditation Celebration. The U.S. Ambassador (ret) John McDonald who originated the day while at the United Nations, will be in attendance at this function and part of the program. We come together every year to celebrate and promote international peace. This year's theme is spiritual in nature and the event is open to people of all faiths, paths, and belief systems from all over the world. Single Volunteers played an instrumental role in the success of our 2004 event: Peace Parade in honor of the United Nations International Day of Peace which was down Embassy Lane, Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC
