Volunteer Alexandria has a long history, in various iterations, of providing support to volunteers and organizations using volunteers in our community. While much attention is gathered for the organization as a result of Spring for Alexandria and the Business Philanthropy Summit, Volunteer Alexandria is hard at work throughout the year--making connections and helping others in need. I give 5 stars to this 5 Star organization.

Volunteer Alexandria does a wonderful job of connecting volunteers with non-profits in the Alexandria Community. As a Volunteer Coordinator, I've used their database to list volunteer opportunities that are harder to fill as I could reach a wider audience. I've also refereed many volunteers to them to help them find appropriate volunteer opportunities if we didn't have anything that matched their needs. They often reach out of the non-profit community with training as well as to offer support. I think non-profits, volunteers and community leaders can look to Volunteer Alexandria for support as they provide a wide ranger of services and are very costumer service focused.

Volunteer Alexandria services as a critical role in our community, matching those with time to dedicate to a charitable cause to organizations in need of services. It acts as a matchmaker, linking the time, talent, energy and desire to contribute to appropriate places looking for these things. The organization makes volunteerism easy, accessible, fun, and meaningful, and really makes a difference in our community.

Volunteer Alexandria is a great organization that pairs up people to volunteer opportunities. My company did a team volunteer project with youth and it was very successful! All of my volunteers really enjoyed themelves and not only was it a great team building experience for us but we loved that we worked hand to hand with middle and high school kids. Kudos to Volunteer Alexandria!
