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:

Starlight MidAtlantic

Website: www.starlight-midatlantic.org

Location: 1054 31st Street, Suite 410B, Washington, DC 20007

Description: Starlight MidAtlantic helps seriously ill children and their families cope with their pain, fear and isolation through entertainment, education and family activities. Starlight MidAtlantic softens the hard edges of what a family experiences when a child has a serious illness, from the time of diagnosis all the way through, in the hospital and at home. Starlight MidAtlantic focuses on the children of Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, DC and West Virginia. When a child has a serious medical condition, everyone in the family is affected. The kids, their parents and siblings struggle with the intrusion of illness into their lives. Our entertainment, education and family activity programs have been proven to distract children from pain, help them better understand and manage their illness, and connect families facing similar challenges so that no one feels alone. Our programs are a unique blend of technology-driven tools and fun-filled special events that take place in and out of the hospital. While doctors work to heal childrenís bodies, Starlight MidAtlantic heals their spirits. We are the only program that works with children on a continuous basis, at the time of diagnosis, during treatment, and afterwards at home. Starlight MidAtlanticís programs are designed not only with the sick child in mind; our programs include siblings and families.
