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:

Historic Brookland Main Street Festival

Website: http://restore.dc.gov/dc_main_streets2/cwp/view.asp?a=3&q=571504

Location: 3420 9th Street, NE, WDC 20017

Description: The commercial district in Brookland has survived because it provides for the basic needs of its customers. The district should be thriving given the support expressed by Brookland residents and its proximity to large institutions that should theoretically provide a strong customer base. However, the district is just holding its own. In order to proper, it needs the strategies to access funds and the technical assistance that the Main Street program can provide. Thus the Brookland community eagerly awaits the Main Street program, with its proven track record in spurring revitalization activity in older, traditional commercial districts.
