Calling All Youth ...


Have you been searching for how to fulfill your school service hour requirements? Would you like to volunteer, but don’t know where to begin? Volunteer coordinators recognize that taking the initial step is often the toughest part of volunteerism. Check out Volunteer Fairfax’s Directory of Youth Service Opportunities. The directory contains over 100 volunteer agencies, indexed by categories such as region, minimum age, and mission area. The directory also contains a list of other resources, information on grants, and tips on getting started.

Busy and on the go, not looking for a long term commitment, but still want to volunteer?


For many us, finding rewarding and fun volunteer opportunities that fit into our busy lifestyle can be challenging.  

Look no more! Volunteer Fairfax’s Volunteers for Change program was made for you.

VFC is for the suburbanite on the go, who may not have time for a long term volunteer commitment but wants to be involved, make a difference and meet other like-minded volunteers in the process and get to know the community.

In a comprehensive 45 minute info session you'll learn everything you need to get started! These are held twice a month at the Volunteer Fairfax headquarters centrally located in Fairfax City. Click here to view our Community Calendar to find upcoming sessions with sign up links.
