The Volunteers for Change program looked like a great way to get involved in my new community after I moved last year and saw their listing in The Washington Post. It has lived up to its promise 100%. I began by signing up for events listed on the monthly calendar, and now volunteer weekly with Volunteer Fairfax. Their opportunities are open to people of all ages, all interests. They also work with MANY nonprofit organizations in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Whether you are a child who wants to help clean up a park, or an adult interested in being on the Board of a nonprofit organization; whether you can donate just a few hours a year or want to be involved on a continuous basis, a Volunteer Fairfax experience will make you feel you are contributing something worthwhile to your community.
