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:

Tourette Syndrome Association of Greater Washingto


Location: 33 University Blvd., East, Silver Spring, MD 20901

Description: The Tourette Syndrome Association of Greater Washington (TSAGW) is a non-profit (501C3) agency and chapter of the National Tourette Syndrome Association serving Virginia, West Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Maryland. Tourette syndrome (TS) is a hereditary, neurological disorder characterized by tics - rapid, sudden, involuntary movements or vocalizations - that occur repeatedly. Many individuals with TS also experience symptoms of other disorders, particularly Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder. Although TS is found in 1 in 2000 individuals in the general population, it remains widely misunderstood by the public and misdiagnosed by health care professionals. The mission of TSAGW is to serve and support those whose lives are affected by Tourette syndrome, to advocate on their behalf, to foster community understanding, and to educate health care providers, educators, employers, and the public about Tourette syndrome
