Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us!
Whether you are interested in a reoccurring volunteer opportunity or would like to volunteer on a more limited basis, take a look below to get an idea of the types of programs that you can get involved in at the DC Dream Center.
My experience at the DC Dream Center has been the most profound treasure. It has truly been, in addition to my family, the greatest gift I have received from God in my life.
The DC Dream Center is a special place that touches so many people’s lives in a variety of ways. The staff and volunteers are committed to making a difference. No matter how frequently you volunteer, you always get so much more back than you put in.
Who can volunteer?
Anyone can volunteer with us! We have opportunities for all ages. We do ask that children under 12 be accompanied by an adult, however.
What types of opportunities exist?
Volunteer can serve in any number of ways. From helping cook for our weekly Tuesday Morning Prayer Breakfast or bi-monthly Reconciliation Lunch to assisting our after-school children’s program, to tutoring our youth, to fundraising, there are any number of ways to connect. If you want to start a new unpaid volunteer program or teach our youth or community members a new skill or creative endeavor, we would love to hear your ideas.
Do I have to live in DC to volunteer?
No. You can fundraise and advocate for the DC Dream Center from any location.
What is the time commitment?
None. While there is a monthly time commitment to the mentoring program, there is no commitment requirement for volunteering. We can work with your schedule to find time that works for you to volunteer.
How old do I need to be to volunteer?
We accept volunteers of all ages, however we do ask that anyone under the age of 12 is accompanied by an adult. If you are operating the grill at one of our cookouts or leading a program, you must be 18 or older.
What are some ways I can volunteer at the DC Dream Center?
We have lots of opportunities to get involved- from Saturday Serve groups, to leading a sports program for children, to accounting. Wherever your skillset fits we can find a way to work with you! Check out the Events & Programs tab for more information on our current programs.
I don’t see the activity I’m looking for. Can I start my own?
Yes! We welcome new talents that can enrich the lives of the people in our community. While we are here to support you logistically we want as many people to come and help and be a part of our community as possible and if you gift does that… AWESOME! Volunteers who wish to start their own program simply need to fill out our volunteer form and request an in-person meeting with our Program Director to discuss their idea further.
