There is no shortage of opportunities to volunteer and give back to our community. While this is not a comprehensive list of ways you can give back, here are a few resources to help you get started.
- VolunteerMatch directory offers a variety of volunteer opportunities giving you the option to filter by virtual or in-person.
- PowerOf is also a platform for volunteer opportunities that allows you to filter by city.
- This Thrillist article written by Elsie Yang shares up to date volunteer opportunities in DC as of April 2021.
We also worked with @clockoutdc to put together a guide on how to give back to your fellow Washingtonians during the holidays — and year round.
