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:

Greater Washington Sports Alliance


Location: 1725 I Street NW, Suite 200 Washington DC 20006

Description: As a non-profit organization, the Greater Washington Sports Alliance capitalizes on the power of sports to excite and unite the Greater Washington community. We have positioned ourselves as an information clearinghouse and a Central Sports Business Bureau to attract and support sporting events coming to the region. Our aim is to better the quality of life of residents through the personal inspiration, regional pride, and economic impact that sporting events provide. In the future, we look forward to bringing more world-class events to Greater Washington and to positively contributing to the diverse and powerful region that we call home. “Running through the streets of Washington, DC is nothing short of running through history,” said Keith Dowling, director of the Wirefly National Marathon. Washington DC’s newest marathon and half marathon continue to build momentum from a year that included a title sponsorship agreement with District of Columbia based Wirefly, the number one online retailer of cell phones and wireless plans. With support from Wirefly and ongoing support from sponsors such as NBC 4, twice the amount of registrants entered the second installment of the race than in 2006. Testimonials ranging from the July 2007 issue of Runner’s World to a five star rating on Marathon have anticipation running high for the marathon’s third installment. “The Greater Washington Sports Alliance is proud to bring participants into the heart of DC,” said Sports Alliance President Bob Sweeney. “This race is special in that you are exposed not only to the tradition and history that is unique to this city, but you also get to experience the communities that truly form the soul of the District.”
