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:

Gleaning Project, DC Jewish Community Center


Location: 16th and Q st, NW

Description: The practice of gleaning comes from the biblical tradition of farmers leaving produce in their fields for the poor to ‘glean.’ Whereas in biblical times, most of the society was agricultural based and the poor lived in rural areas, nowadays many of our poor live in urban areas with no access to farmland. Farmers have a great deal of food that they would like to donate because some of the food, while still nutritious and completely edible, does not meet supermarket standards. Modern day gleaning has adapted to these economic changes by sending volunteers to gather leftover produce in farmers fields, and the food gets distributed to homeless shelters and food banks to feed the poor. The DC Jewish Community Center works with the MidAtlantic Gleaning Network to glean one Sunday a month from July through November in a Virginia or Maryland field. In the winter time we volunteer one Sunday a month at the Capital Area Foodbank.
