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:

Dinner Program for Homeless Women

Website: www.dphw.org

Location: 945 G St. NW, Washington, DC 20001

Description: The Dinner Program for Homeless Women is a place of hospitality. Any woman (and her children) may receive an appetizing and nutritious dinner in a stable and safe environment, and be provided the support and opportunity needed to help her to achieve her full potential. At the Dinner Program for Homeless Women we serve meals to approximately 75 -100 women each night. Along with a healthy and appetizing meal the Dinner Program provides basic hygiene items, access to a telephone, an address for women to receive their mail, and information and referral to other agencies throughout the city. Weekly on-site outreach is also available to the women by social workers, mental health professionals, and volunteer lawyers. Also, we use the activities within the kitchen as a training site for our Real Opportunity Employment Training Program.
