About Our Organization
The mission of Volunteer Alexandria is to build a stronger community by inspiring people to volunteer. We match volunteers to opportunities and care for the heart of Alexandria by mobilizing helping hands!
Through our programs and services, we refer thousands of volunteers to over 500 nonprofit organizations and city agencies in and around Alexandria. These volunteers and organizations feed families, foster dogs and cats, educate children, visit seniors, clean up parks, bring tourists and community spirit to local events, and so much more. Volunteers make this the kind of city where you want to live and work.
Volunteerism is now more important than ever. Independent Sector values volunteer hours at $24.90 per hour in Virginia, showing that volunteerism is a valuable commodity. As Alexandria's volunteer force multiplier, we are an important part of the solution. Today, we are your Community Resource for Volunteerism in Alexandria.
