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.

Featured Organization:

Accokeek Foundation at Piscataway National Park

Website: www.accokeek.org

Location: 3400 Bryan Point Road, Accokeek, MD 20607

Description: We are an educational non-profit organization which cares for 200 of Piscataway Park's nearly 5,000 acres. Using our two farm sites, the historic National Colonial Farm and the modern Ecosystem Farm as outdoor classrooms, our programs blend ecology, history and economics, educating people of all ages about responsible land stewardship -- past, present and future. The park features walking trails through lush upland and lowland forest and along the Potomac River; a Native Tree Arboretum and one of only 2 remaining American Chestnut groves. We have established an extensive Bluebird Trail providing habitat and nesting sites fostering the comeback of this special bird. The Accokeek Foundation is a recognized leader in the preservation of historic plants and heritage breeds of domesticated animals. The National Colonial Farm is an outdoor living history museum offering a hands-on look at life on a middle-class tobacco farm circa 1775. In addition to a packed calendar of school programs and weekly activities, we sponsor major events, including: Children's Day, Colonial Day, African-American Heritage Day, and Winter's Eve. The Ecosystem Farm produces high quality vegetables in an ecologically sound manner on soil depleted from years of tobacco crops. We also conduct research to improve everything from soil quality to irrigation to seed selection; and provide educational opportunities for students, farmers, scholars and consumers,in addition to an internationally recognized farm apprenticeship program.
