Where Do I Start?
For starters, let us thank you! Thank you for taking the time to visit our evolving site and explore the numerous ways you can serve our community. By working together, we can continue to build upon the effective work that Arlington County has been doing so well for so long.
Volunteer Arlington wants to make your volunteer experience as easy as possible! Here are some options for exploring the best fit for you.
SEARCH OUR VOLUNTEER MATCHING TOOL. You can see the wide range of opportunities available in Arlington and the surrounding DC Metropolitan Area while also filtering your search based on area of impact, skills, location, and availabilty. Our nonprofit and county partners regularly post opportunities on this calendar. So, check back soon if you don't see what you are looking for the first time. It is worth noting that many of the posted opportunities are not necessarily for a specific time. (For example, an organization might be looking for tutors. If you are interested, sign up to "Volunteer"! That specific organization will be back in touch with you to have a conversation and begin the process of getting you connected! For those upcoming projects that are for a specific date, you can also check out our HOT PROJECTS page here.
